​​US President Biden praises Kenyan President William Ruto for accepting to deploy police to Haiti.

President William Ruto’s decision to send police personnel to Haiti to assist and train the nation’s law enforcement in their attempts to restore order has been praised by US President Joe Biden.

While speaking at the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Biden praised Ruto for agreeing to a plea to end the conflict in the nation that has been at war since 2021.

“We embrace nations stepping up to lead new ways and to seek new breakthroughs on hard issues,” Biden remarked.

“For example in Haiti, the Caribbean communities facilitated a dialogue among Haitian society. I thank President William Ruto of Kenya for his willingness to serve as the lead nation of a UN-backed security support system.”

The US President called on the Kenyan police to maintain a peaceful mission in addressing the unrest in the nation and encouraged them not to use excessive force against people.

He also urged the UN Security Council to keep stepping up security in the Caribbean country. 

Biden stated that the people of Haiti could not continue to wait any longer for UN intervention.

Haiti has been marred with violence since the assassination of former President Jovenel Moise in 2021. 

The assassination resulted in a wave of crime and unrest with criminal gangs controlling over 80 percent of the capital. 

Violent crimes such as kidnappings for ransom, carjackings, and armed robberies have been on the rise as gangs fight for a living.

Prime Minister Ariel Henry, who succeeded Moise, has been grappling with the challenge of curbing the violence. 

The country has also been facing humanitarian, political, and security crises due to its weak government and overwhelmed security forces.

The deployment of police officers from the United States could help to address some of these challenges by providing training and support to the Haitian National Police.
