At UN, unrest in Haiti, Ethiopia attracts global care

The speeches may be scripted, but the UN General Assembly can sometimes be the only direct window into the regional… challenges that order global care.

On Saturday, world leaders were speaking on On behalf of of some of the most unstable and disturbing current conflicts. That includes India’s fight over the Kashmir region with bitter rival Pakistan, the domestic crises in Haiti die culminate in a migrant crisis at the US-Mexico border and questions over the Ethiopian government’s role in reported deaths from starvation in the Tigray region.

Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry did not shy away from the unrest in to tackle his country after a major earthquake and the murder of its chairman, Jovenel Moise, in past months — alluding to but not directly tackling reports die Being able to involve Henry himself in the murder.

“L want to confirm here, on this platform, my determination to do everything in my power to find the collaborators, accomplices and sponsors of this disgusting crime. Nothing, absolutely nothing, no political maneuver, no media campaign, no distraction, might put me off this goal: render justice for President Moise,” said Henry in a pre-recorded speech.

“It is a debt to his memory, to be family and the Haitian people’ said Henry. “The judicial investigation is difficult. It’s a transnational crime. And for for this we formally request mutual legal assistance. It’s a priority of mine government for the whole nation. Because this crime can not rest unpunished et the guilty, al die to be guilty punished.”

The statement comes days after Henry fired his chief prosecutor, who had asked a judge to indict Henry in killing of moise die the . shocked world and around the . to block prime minister to leave the country.

Haiti’s problems are over gone beyond the borders with thousands of migrants die flee to the United States. This week, the Biden administration special envoy to Haiti, Daniel Foote, resigned in protest of “Inhumane” large-scale US evictions of Haitian migrants. Foote is alone in the position appointed in July, after the murder.

Henry emphatically said that inequalities and conflicts drive migration. But he stopped short of directly criticism of Washington, whose treatment of Haitian asylum seekers have sparked protests.

People, fathers and mothers who to have childrenwill always flee poverty and conflict,” Henry said. “Migration will continue as long as the planet has both affluent areas, while most of the world’s population lives in poverty, even extreme poverty, without any prospect of a better life.”

It was a flatout denial for Ethiopia Deputy Prime Minister Demeke Mekonnen, who rejected humanitarian concerns over Tigray as part of a “twisted propaganda” campaign” in the warring one corner of northern Ethiopia.

“The criminal enterprise and its enablers have created and advertised horrific images of fake incidents. As if the real misery of U.S people is not enough, storylines are made to match not the facts, but preconceived stereotypes,” said Mekonnen.

Ethiopia has faced the pressure of global concerns since the UN warned of famine in the conflict, called it the worldis the worst hunger crisis in a decade. Deaths from starvation have been reported since the government in June imposed what the UN calls a “de facto blockade of humanitarian aid”.

In his speech on Saturday, Mekonnen urged the international community to steer clear of sanctions, avoid involvement and a “constructive approach” of its armed forces from the region.

“Regulations and punitive measures have never helped to make situations of relations,” he said, less than 10 days after the US threatened impose sanctions against Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and other leaders.

Meanwhile, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has largely sidestepped his country’s regional conflict, making just a casual reference to Kashmir and channeling his comments through the lens. of the Afghanistan crisis.

modes, who spend part of the weekly meeting with US officials to strengthen ties in the Indo-Pacific, was measured in his recoil in comparison met the damning – albeit predictable – rhetoric of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan hours earlier.

Modi appealed to the international community until help the women, children and minorities of Afghanistan and said it was imperative not to use the country as a base for dispersal terror.

“We also need be alert and ensure that no country tries to take advantage of the delicate situation there, and use it as a tool for his own selfish interests,” he said in an apparent reference to Pakistan, wedged in between Afghanistan and India.

On Friday, Khan had, ever again, labeled as Modi’s Hindu nationalist government “fascist” and scolded against India’s crackdown on Kashmir, the controversial region divided over each country, but claimed by both.

The Indian government has expressed concern that the chaos left in the wake of die from the USA military withdrawal from Afghanistan will benefit Pakistan and fuel the long-simmering insurgency in Kashmir, where militants already have a foothold.
