The UK is deeply concerned at the deteriorating security situation in Haiti and the impact this is having on both the Haitian people and attempts to return to political stability following the assassination of President Moise. We are closely following developments. We encourage all actors to work in cooperation with the international community and the United Nations to tackle these serious challenges. The UK continues to use our platform both in country and at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to support the Special Representative of the Secretary General for Haiti, Helen Meagher La Lime and the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti, BINUH, in their ongoing diplomatic engagement with, and support to, the Haitian authorities and civil society.
