Statement by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) on the Situation in Haiti
The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) continues to monitor very closely, and views with deep concern, developments in Haiti.
The Community urges all stakeholders to be guided by the Constitution, respect for the rule of law and the electoral process and in that regard is heartened by the fact that an electoral timetable has been set.
The Community is also deeply anguished about the security situation including the actions of armed gangs which threaten the maintenance of law and order in the country and disrupt the lives and livelihoods of its citizens.
The Community encourages all parties to engage in meaningful dialogue in the interest of peace and stability and strongly urges that action be taken to foster a safe environment, a return to normal life and the building of sustainable democratic institutions.
