NDO/VNA – Vietnam and Indonesia delivered a joint speech supporting efforts by the government of Haiti in constitutional reform, and called on parties in Haiti to enhance comprehensive dialogues, during a video conference of the UN Security Council (UNSC) on June 19.

The meeting looked into the situation in Haiti and the report of the UN Secretary General on the operation of the UN Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH).

Both Vietnam and Indonesia expressed their concern over difficulties and uncertainties regarding the situation in Haiti, especially the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

They said they back the electoral process and the intensification of women’s participation.

The two countries also lauded the BINUH for its measures in support of Haiti over the recent past, and urged the office and the UN working group to identify concrete measures to help Haiti deal with pressing issues.

Other UNSC member countries praised the office’s supporting role in the political transformation and stressed the need for Haiti to step up political dialogues and constitutional reform.

They voiced their concern over activities of armed criminal gangs, and appealed to the international community and other countries to continue their support to Haiti in handling these challenges.
