U.S. Senator Marco Rubio visits Haiti on Wednesday
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio met on Wednesday with president Jovenel Moise and members of parliament and discussed the formation of a new Cabinet following the ouster this week of Jean Henry Ceant as prime minister.
Rubio wrote on his Twitter account that he discussed the formation of a new government in his meeting with Gary Bodeau, head of the lower house, and Carl Cantave, president of the Senate.
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio also urged dialogue between Jovenel Moise and opposition parties calling for his resignation.
“The goal is to urge for dialogue,” said Laura Ortiz, who handles foreign policy press inquiries and Hispanic media outreach for the senator’s office.
