An important meeting was held this Thursday, May 16, between members of the Presidential Transitional Council (CPT) and Maria Isabel Salvador, Head of the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH). The working session focused on the United Nations Security Council resolution, which authorizes the deployment of a Multinational Missione Support for Security (MMSS) in Haiti.

This meeting takes place in a context marked by growing instability in Haiti. The Security Council resolution that was passed aims to respond to the security challenges that continue to disrupt the country, exacerbated by a persistent political, economic and humanitarian crisis.

The main mission of the MMSS created by the resolution is to strengthen the capacities of the Haitian security forces in order to stabilize the situation and create an environment conducive to democratic elections and national reconstruction.

It was the Transitional Presidential Council which invited the Special Representative of the Secretary General in Haiti Maria Salvador to participate in this working meeting concerning Security Council resolution 2699 authorizing the Multinational Security Support Mission.

During this meeting, according to a BINUH publication, the Special Representative reaffirmed BINUH’s commitment to implementing its mandate in support of national authorities and reiterated the Secretary General’s call to strengthen the participation of women and young people in the political process.

There are many challenges ahead for the mission. According to more than one, the effectiveness of the MMSS will largely depend on cooperation between different national and international actors, as well as the ability to respond to the immediate needs of the population while planning long-term solutions. The mission will also have to navigate a complex political context, where tensions and mistrust between different factions remain high.

The meeting of May 16 between the CPT and the Head of the BINUH occurs while the BINUH has still not welcomed the process which led to the choice of Édgard Leblanc as president of the CPT. It’s still radio silence!

According to the latest information, the first Kenyan troops are due to set foot on Dessalinian soil by the end of this month.
