Press Statement

The United States welcomes the agreement by Executive and Legislative authorities in Haiti to ensure the continuity of governance and the completion of the ongoing electoral process.

Echoing the Core Group statement of February 6, we trust "that all actors will keep the best interests of Haiti and its people above all other considerations."

We also acknowledge the constructive role played by the Special Mission of the Organization of American States in fostering a spirit of consensus among Haitian stakeholders.

The United States looks forward to continuing to work with Haiti and its international partners in support of strengthening democracy in Haiti.
