On Thursday, 24 April, Council members had their second round of negotiations at the expert level on the draft presidential statement which is expected to be adopted at the high-level debate on Haiti on 6 April. During the Colombia’s presidency of the Council, Haiti is expected to be a top priority issue with its president possibly chairing this debate.

Although there were still some differences over language on development and security, Council members appear to have come to a general agreement on the basic content of the draft presidential statement. They are now waiting for the preliminary results of Haiti’s run-off presidential elections before finalising the draft presidential statement.
