The following is a statement by the Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley, on the assassination of Haiti’s President, Jovenel Moise.
The assassination of President Moise of Haiti is an atrocious act which Barbados vehemently condemns. Violence can never be a solution, and must be rejected in all circumstances.
Barbados urges all to pause and work at all costs for peace. The Haitian people deserve this. It is the necessary foundation for their stability and for democracy to emerge to protect them against the many vagaries they face, man-made and otherwise.
We pray for the swift recovery of his wife.
