Kenyan Government confirms willingness to send troops to Haiti

Nairobi, Apr 26 (Prensa Latina) The Kenyan Government has reportedly confirmed its willingness to send troops to Haiti following the inauguration of the Transitional Presidential Council in the Caribbean nation.

President William Ruto said his country, in coordination with other African and Caribbean countries, is ready and committed to implementing the security support infrastructure as the United Nations Security Council resolution stipulates.

Ruto also noted that establishing the Presidential Council is a critical step in Haiti’s political transition and pledged his support.

The Kenyan Government recently suspended sending military forces until transitional authorities are established.

“Police cannot be deployed in the Port-au-Prince streets without an administration,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Salim Swaleh said at the time, quoted by Le Nouvelliste newspaper.

There have also been concerns about the financing of the mission and the 300 million dollars pledged by the United States to the trust fund set up by the United Nations.
