Haiti: Government's Tougher Stance on Insecurity

Reacting to a Christmas speech by Prime Minister Jacques Edouard Alexis announcing a tougher stance on gang-driven kidnappings, Deky Lakyel from Collectif Haiti de Provence writes (Fr): “Not so long ago the stance was still to negotiate with the bandits. Today the approach and the discourse are more a-propos to the nation's expectations. The thugs must be tracked down on their turf.

    hello, i am a sixth form student who is taking part in a model un conference. i’m representing china on the security council, and as i’m having some difficulty accessing certain sites and papers, i was wondering if anyone could give me a simple runthrough of china’s foreign policies on the major international issues at the moment? also, i would greatly appreciate anyone with any information on china’s stance on haiti letting me know.
    thank you

  • Hi,
    I can’t help you much with China, but for China’s stance on Haiti, search this blog or google with the words Haiti and China or the words Haiti and Taiwan.
