The UK is following closely the deteriorating political and security situation in Haiti and the impact this is having on the Haitian people. We encourage international partners to work together to assist in Haitian-led efforts to tackle the underlying causes of gang violence. UK officials are actively engaged in UN Security Council discussions on Haiti, including those on security. We will continue to work with our international partners to build a coordinated and coherent response.
