Caricom demands an end to the deadlock in Haiti after requesting aid

He called on the heads of governments of the regional bloc to choose the nation over self-interest, and affirmed their readiness to facilitate meaningful dialogue and find consensus among the various formations.

In a statement, they condemned “the insensitive and inhumane actions of the armed gangs responsible for blocking roads that limit the movement of Haitian citizens and goods.”

They also condemned the destruction of lives and livelihoods and the deprivation of basic needs due to the effects of the distribution of fuels throughout the country, which paralyzed hospitals, schools and water pumps.

Caricom suggested assisting Haiti in institutional development, holding free and fair elections when the necessary conditions exist, and creating a framework for long-term social and economic development.

However, he acknowledged that these initiatives cannot be effectively implemented until the security situation is addressed.

In this sense, the OIC Heads of Government emphasized that they took into account Henry’s call for urgent assistance from international partners in the short term to address humanitarian and security crises.

The actions of Haitian criminal gangs, in addition to blocking fuel distribution, closing hospitals, schools and water pumps, prevent the supply of clean water, exacerbating the resurgence of cholera, particularly in slums.

Caricom includes, in addition to Haiti, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago. .
