U.S. Prepares U.N. Security Council Resolution to Deploy Multinational Force to Haiti

HeadlineAug 01, 2023

The U.S. State Department says it will soon introduce a resolution at the United Nations Security Council authorizing a multinational armed force to be deployed to Haiti as the island nation grapples with worsening political instability and gang violence. Last weekend, Kenya’s government offered to send 1,000 police officers to Haiti to support Haitian police, an offer applauded by U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres. Many Haitians remain opposed due to the disastrous history of U.N., U.S. and foreign interventions in Haiti.
