Building peace in Haiti

9/9/2009 // Norway’s deputy permanent representative to the United Nations, Mona Juul, says the international community must renew its push for peace and stability in Haiti.

In a statement to the Security Council, Ambassador Juul said Norway
will continue to support the efforts of President Bill Clinton in his role as UN Special Envoy for Haiti.

She said Norway believes that the former American president can play a key role in helping the Haitian government consolidate peace. That’s why it was the first country to give financial support to the office of the Special Envoy.

While praising the UN’s comprehensive involvement in the Caribbean island nation, Ambassador Juul pointed out that challenges still remain. She said a substantial international military and police presence will be necessary for another year and their success depend on continued international support.
