The President of Suriname, Chan Santokhi, announced this Sunday, April 5, 2024, that his Government is ready to send police and soldiers to Haiti to reinforce the Multinational Security Support Mission (MMSS) which will help the National Police of Haiti (PNH) in its fight against armed gangs.

After the promises of the Minister of Foreign Affairs last September, it is the turn of the President of Suriname to confirm the contribution to Haiti: “We will provide our support to the multinational force led by Kenya. We will not just send our soldiers. There are a lot of people dying there, we are going to support our sister nation in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM),” he insisted.

Mr. Santokhi indicated that the training and selection of Surinamese officers is rigorous, a contingent prepared by the Ministers of Defense and Justice, in collaboration with the police and the national army of Suriname.

By calling for increased solidarity from CARICOM member countries towards Haiti, President Santokhi highlights the importance of regional unity to face common security challenges. This strengthened solidarity could provide crucial support to Haiti in its efforts to overcome its security and socio-economic challenges.
