T&T Rules Out Sending Troops to Haiti

The Trinidad and Tobago government says that it will not be providing any military assistance to Haiti, where criminal gangs are seeking to overthrow the government.

Last month, Haiti’s Prime Minister Ariel Henry travelled to Kenya where he signed an agreement that would allow the African country to lead a United Nations Security Council sanctioned Multinational Security Mission  to restore peace and security in Haiti.

But in January, the Kenya High Court ruled against sending troops to the French-speaking Caricom nation.

And speaking at a news conference in Port of Spain, Trinidad’s Foreign and CARICOM Affairs Minister, Dr. Amery Browne, told reporters that the government has taken a position regarding sending troops to join the Multi-National Security Mission.

He said with respect to the “contributions of boots on the ground, the Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister has made it very clear that is the current position of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, that they are not in a position to contribute military forces, police officers or boots on the ground at this stage for that particular effort.
