The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has been meeting with several actors to address the situation in Haiti, Irfaan Ali, president of the regional bloc and President of Guyana, informed in a video released in this capital.

Ali reiterated that the organization has been mainly focused on the events that have unfolded in the last few days and noted that the expanded Office has met separately with Prime Minister Ariel Henry, the stakeholders in that nation, and international partners.

The aim, he said, is to solve this highly complex issue, where people’s lives and livelihoods are at stake.

“We remain deeply committed and will communicate the outcome of our deliberations as soon as possible,” Ali said.

According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the recent escalation in several neighborhoods in Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, has forced 15,000 people to flee their homes, most of whom were already displaced.

On this day, the humanitarian community in the country called on all parties concerned to stop the violence immediately, allow safe access to people in need, and respect human rights and international standards.
