We note and welcome the reporting of comments made by Jamaican PM Holness on 31 January, that he would be willing to contribute to the Haitian Government's request to the UN Secretary General for a multinational security assistance deployment to Haiti to support a return to a reasonable level of stability and peace. Developments in Haiti are under constant review and UK officials remain involved in discussions - including at the UN - over how the international community can best help Haiti to resolve its complex challenges.
