U.S. Seeks Multinational Security Help For Haiti

The United States has drafted a United Nations Security Council resolution that will encourage the “immediate deployment of a multinational rapid action force” to Haiti to address the nation’s worst security and health crisis in decades.

The draft resolution, confirmed by multiple U.S. and UN officials, comes in response to a call by UN Secretary-General António Guterres last week for the establishment of a rapid reaction force to assist the Haitian National Police.

Over the Last four weeks, powerful armed gangs have all but sent the country into anarchy, blockading the country’s largest fuel terminals and cutting off its critical roadways.

This is the first public indication so far that the Biden administration is willing to participate in a military force in Haiti — although the resolution does not specify what role various nations would play.
