"Haiti will still have to wait to know if a multinational force will come to help it."
On Wednesday, the Haitian media Radio Métrodome published that Haiti will have to wait a little longer to know if the United Nations (UN) will give the go-ahead for the deployment of a multinational force to come to the aid of the neighboring country.
According to what he said, a Haitian diplomat accredited to the UN informed him that this issue, which should be discussed during the meeting of the Security Council of the international organization this coming Friday, September 15, could be postponed.
"Haiti will still have to wait to know if a multinational force will come to help it," dictated the message disseminated through its social networks.
On the other hand, at this moment, UN member countries are still evaluating the situation to see how to find a way out of the aggravating crisis in which Haiti is immersed as a result of generalized violence, gang control, the wave of kidnappings, unhealthy conditions and hunger.
