Jamaica Prepared To Support Int’l Response To Haiti – PM

Jamaica is prepared to support a united international effort in response to the persistent crisis and deteriorating conditions in Haiti, says Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness.

He was speaking in the House of Representatives on Tuesday (January 31), where he reaffirmed Jamaica’s commitment to working with CARICOM and bilateral partners, such as Canada, the United States of America, and the wider international community, towards achieving sustainable solutions for the situation in Haiti.

“Together with like-minded countries, we continue to believe that any solution must be driven by the will of the Haitian people, together with the collective support of the international community,” he said.

“We note with interest an initiative being contemplated within the Organization of American States (OAS) to strengthen the organization’s response to the increasingly complex and challenging situation in Haiti. Jamaica will remain closely involved in efforts within this body to develop constructive approaches at the hemispheric level,” Mr. Holness told the House.

The Prime Minister said that Jamaica took hope from the signing in December 2022 of the National Consensus for an Inclusive Transition and Transparent Elections in Haiti, which identified a calendar for installing an elected government by February 2024.
