Haiti government asks for international military assistance
President Obama said Thursday the US will provide military support to Haiti’s government. This follows the declaration in early March that the US and other countries will support the country, which has been hit with a devastating earthquake over a month ago.
“The United States Government is deeply concerned about the devastating effects of the earthquake in Haiti. The President has asked US government officials to offer any assistance that may be of assistance to the Haitian Government,” said the statement by the White House.
The statement was made after the Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive said that Haiti expects the US to offer assistance to the government after the devastating earthquake a month ago. Bellerive also said that the country was going to ask for international assistance to help rebuild it.
The White House said the United States “has always sought to help build peace, stability and economic opportunity” for countries in need, and to “strengthen the resilience and capabilities of the global community in the face of natural disasters.”
The statement added, “We look forward to working with the Haitian Government to respond to their requests as soon as possible.”
