Haiti has asked Washington and the United Nations to send troops to help keep the country’s seaports, airports and other places safe, a Haiti minister said on Friday. The United States of America has already said that it will send the FBI and other agents to Port-au-Prince. Let us inform that on Wednesday, President Jovenel Moise and his wife were attacked by entering the house in the capital. The President died in this attack, while his injured wife had to be taken to America for treatment.
It is only after this that a ‘power zero’ situation has arisen in the poor and troubled Caribbean country. Election minister Mathias Pierre told AFP news agency, “We believe that some chaotic people may destroy some infrastructure to create unrest in the country.” During talks with the US Secretary of State and the United Nations, we have requested to send troops.
America will help in the investigation
The US State Department and the Pentagon, on the other hand, both confirmed they had received requests for “security and investigative assistance” and said officials were in contact with Port-au-Prince but did not specify whether troops would be deployed. . There has been no comment from the United Nations at this time.
Washington had indicated its willingness to help with the Haitian investigation. White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Friday that senior FBI and other officials are heading to the Caribbean as soon as possible. Pierre confirmed that the request was made because on Friday there were constant questions about who could be the mastermind of the massacre. The motive for the murder has also not been made public.
People preparing for ‘bad days’
There is no working parliament in Haiti. In Port-au-Prince, people were seen opening shops and public transport returning to the streets on Friday. There was a scuffle between people in supermarkets to buy necessities, while there were also long lines at gas stations to buy propane for cooking. Marjorie, a resident of Port-au-Prince, told the news agency that I I don’t know what is going to happen in the country tomorrow or day after tomorrow, so I am preparing for the bad days to come.
