On Lives Lost in Recent Events in Haiti

We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the two U.S. citizens killed by gangs in Haiti.  On behalf of the President, our Ambassador in Haiti is in touch with the families who we know are experiencing unimaginable grief.  Our Embassy is ready to provide all appropriate consular assistance.

Unfortunately, this serves as a reminder that the security situation in Haiti cannot wait – too many innocent lives are being lost. During Kenyan President Ruto’s visit yesterday, President Biden reiterated the United States’ commitment to support the expedited deployment of the Kenyan-led Multinational Security Support (MSS) Mission to bolster the Haitian National Police’s capabilities to protect civilians, restore the rule of law, and pave the way to democratic governance.  Working with Congress, we are supporting this MSS mission and other Haitian-led efforts.
