So we do not we no longer want the intervention of foreign troops in the country. But we are open to friendly countries who want to give us a helping hand to train, supervise and equip our brave police officers to do the job better. It is not the foreigners who must tell us what is best for us. But it is the Haitians who must unite to get the country out of this slump into which it seems to be condemned.
