Canada and the United States will try to create an international force for Haiti | The most important news and analysis in Latin America | Dr..

The United States and Canada will discuss in the next two days the formation of an international force for Haiti in response to the serious humanitarian crisis plaguing the Caribbean country, Washington said on Wednesday (10.26.2022).

Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, who travels to Canada on Thursday and Friday, will take up the matter with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and his counterpart, Melanie Jolie, the U.S. State Department’s head of Latin America, Brian Nichols, said in a call with reporters.

Nichols, the assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs, said he was confident the UN Security Council would pass a resolution authorizing the creation of the international force in early November.

On his first official visit to Canada, Linkin will meet Petrodeau and Julie on Thursday in Ottawa. On Friday, he will travel with the Canadian minister to Montreal, where the bulk of the Haitian community resides in that country.

On the other hand, the Chief of the US General Staff, General Mark Milley and Canada, General Wayne Air, spoke over the phone to discuss the situation in Haiti and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Last Friday, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution imposing sanctions and arms embargoes on the gangs that dominate large areas of Haiti and that block the supply of fuel and other essential products in Port-au-Prince.

So far, opposition from Russia and China has prevented approval of a US- and Mexican-sponsored resolution to send an armed force to Haiti to restore security.
