Michel Martelly at UN, Haiti is one of the safest countries in the region
Haiti's call for release cannot be viewed as premature. While the country has suffered from its share of political turmoil for decades, leading to unrest and the need for assistance from international sources, the past few years has seen the spreading of the country's wings in the training and formation of its own Defense Corps. According to the President, Haiti has already begun the process by training its corps, and it is now the time for the United Nations to fulfill their part with the rolling out of their MINUSTAH agents.
For the past few years, they have worked to strengthen the National Police's operational capacity and have established a new civil engineering unit that is based in the Artibonite region. The newly developed Defense Corps will be expected to carry out their duties on the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic, but may also be called on in moments of disaster to offer relief aid and emergency assistance. Still, while Haiti wishes to cut this particular string with the United Nations, they are not alone in the overall struggle. The Defense Corps receives help from the Inter-American Defense organization, Brazil and Ecuador.
