Declaration of the Presidency on behalf of the European Union on situation in Haiti

The EU expresses its concern about the violent upheavals in Haiti and especially deplores the loss of lives and damages incurred. The EU calls on all parties to restrain from violence and to engage in constructive dialogue in order to overcome the current crisis.

The EU strongly supports the continued presence of MINUSTAH without any reduction of its forces. Current events show that the presence of MINUSTAH is crucial to secure public security and the rule of law.

The EU, in close cooperation with other donors and the international community at large, will continue to support the Haitian authorities in their endeavours to meet the pressing demands of the Haitian people and to ensure the political and social stabilisation of the country.
