OAS delegation welcomes constructive discussions in Haiti
Published on February 2, 2016 Email To Friend    Print Version

Sir Ronald Sanders (L) with Senate President Jocelerme Privert

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- The special mission of the Organization of American States (OAS) to Haiti, headed by the chair of the Permanent Council, ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda, Sir Ronald Sanders, arrived in Port-au-Prince on Sunday.

The mission has so far met President Michel Martelly and senior members of the government, Senate President, Jocelerme Privert, and members of the various political parties in the Senate, as well as Lower Chamber President, Cholzer Chancy.

Sanders said that he “regards the conversations that the mission has had so far as very constructive, particularly because they are pointing towards a solution to the present difficulty being reached by national stakeholders”.

He also stated that the mission “is in Haiti to speak to as many groups as possible in order to assess the situation”. He stressed that “this fact-finding mission is not in Haiti to interfere, meddle or mediate in Haitian affairs”.

The delegation, including senior advisor to the secretary general, Gabriel Bidegain, and former Saint Lucia ambassador, Sonia Johnny, will present its findings to the OAS Permanent Council upon its return to Washington.
