Updated: Mar 14

United States Assistant Secretary of State for Conflict and Stabilization Operations Anne Witkowsky is visiting Haiti for talks with top Haitian officials and “a diverse array of Haitian stakeholders.”

The US Department of State says Witkowsky will visit the country from March 7-9 to meet with Prime Minister Ariel Henry and members of the Montana Group “in support of an inclusive, Haitian-led political dialogue.”

The assistant secretary will also meet “a diverse array of Haitian stakeholders” — including civil society and women leaders — “to reinforce the US Government's long-term commitment to the Haitian people by promoting long-term stability and development, and to discuss US support for Haitian solutions to issues facing the country”.

“The assistant secretary will also highlight the United States' ongoing support for security-sector capacity building with Haitian officials and civil society representatives, and reaffirm our commitment to a Haitian-led restoration of democratic institutions,” the statement said.

In addition, it said Witkowsky will mark International Women's Day with United Nations staff and Haitian women leaders “to recognize the vital role of women in conflict resolution and in the economy, and reinforce the US government's commitment to strengthening gender equality and meaningfully engaging women as equal partners in economic, political and security decisions”.
