Through a statement, the office of the Haitian head of government confirmed that at the meeting the premier will be able to present the needs of the nation in terms of equipment and training for the National Police, with the purpose of resolving the problem of insecurity.
Henry is also scheduled to speak about what he calls “his offers of political dialogue and his outstretched hand to all sectors of national life [haitiana] for a concerted exit from the crisis”.
This will also be the right time, according to the head of government, to raise awareness among international partners at the donor conference scheduled for February 16.
The participating Foreign Ministries, separately, have expressed that they expect a productive meeting after the call made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada, Melanie Joly, to talk about the future of Haiti.
The beleaguered, poverty-stricken Caribbean nation has been rocked by unrest since the summer, when President Jovenel Moise was killed in a shooting at his home that also wounded his wife.
They will be joined by representatives from the United Nations, the Caribbean Community and the International Organization of La Francophonie in what Global Affairs Canada describes as an attempt to coordinate security efforts and foster political stability and sustainable development.
