Open Debate on the UN Mission for Justice Support in Haiti


“Mr. President, the United States welcomes Haiti’s progress in promoting respect for human rights and we commit to continue working with the Government of Haiti to further address the country’s significant challenges. 

MINUJUSTH has a central role in promoting human rights. Its task to strengthen national human rights institutions is essential to promoting the rule of law, democratic institution building, and security in Haiti. It contributes to ensuring accountability, as well as respect for human rights, including for women and children.”

– Ambassador Jonathan Cohen
