Description

The UN Security Council took a historic step on Monday by authorizing the deployment of a multinational security mission to help the Haitian police combat rampant gang violence.

Kenya has offered to lead the force, which is not a UN operation, and other countries have signalled their participation.

Ahead of the Council vote, UN News’s Cristina Silveiro spoke to Ambassador Bob Rae of Canada, Chair of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Ad Hoc Advisory Group on Haiti.

He said the mission “is not going to be a walk in the park” and began by explaining the force’s relationship with the UN Office in Haiti, BINUH.
