Haitian President Moïse was attacked and killed by unknown armed elements at his home in the capital Port-au-Prince in the early morning of the 7th. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres issued a statement condemning the assassination of Moïse in the strongest possible terms.
Guterres said the perpetrators of this criminal act must be brought to justice. He also extended his deepest condolences to the Government and people of Haiti and to the family of President Moïse.
Guterres calls on all Haitians to uphold constitutional order, to remain united in the face of this horrendous act and to reject all violence. The United Nations will continue to support the Government and people of Haiti.
The Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations, the rotating presidency of the UN Security Council this month, also issued a statement expressing sadness over Moïse’s assassination.
