We would like to commend the professionalism demonstrated by the Haiti National Police in maintaining security and preserving public order on November 18, and in the days before and after. We offer our condolences to the families and friends of the victims who have lost their lives.
The United States recognizes the democratic legitimacy of the government of Haiti, its elected institutions, and elected officials. We urge the Haitian government to continue its efforts towards strengthening the rule of law, good governance, and anti-corruption efforts to ensure political and economic stability.
The United States will continue to work with Haiti toward a safer, more secure, and prosperous country for all Haitians. We note that Haiti will be preparing for legislative elections next year. We hope all Haitians agree that those can only take place in a climate of peace, tranquility, transparency and in accordance with Haitian law.
