Foreign Office Note – Haiti

Italy is appalled by the news of the brutal assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise and strongly condemns the attack at the heart of Haitian institutions. It expresses its sincere condolences to the President’s family and to the Haitian people and hopes that the perpetrators of this crime will be brought to justice as soon as possible.

In the face of such a dramatic event, Italy appeals to all Haitian political actors and forces to preserve the delicate political balance, prevent tensions from erupting and ensure the institutional stability of the country and the security of the population.

The international community must support every effort to this end, also in view of guaranteeing the constitutional referendum and the elections, which are absolutely necessary milestones for launching a democratic and shared process, centred on national dialogue between all political forces and on the strengthening of the Haitian institutions.
