Port-au-Prince, Jul 6 (Prensa Latina) The President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, assured that he is willing to support the multilateral force requested by Haiti to combat the gangs in the face of the upsurge in violence.

Kagame recalled the ties that unite Africa with Haiti and affirmed that responding to the request of a brother country is a duty, as soon as the conditions are met, as cited by the Government´s Office.

Henry traveled to Trinidad and Tobago on Monday to participate in the CARICOM summit. He held bilateral meetings with his peers in order to address the situation in Haiti, which is being ravaged by gangs and a deep political crisis.
