JAMAICA – Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness says his government is willing to send soldiers and police officers to Haiti as part of a proposed multinational security assistance deployment.

Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness told the Island’s House of Representatives on Tuesday that he wants to help Haiti and “Support a return to a reasonable level of stability and peace, which would be necessary for any inclusive, democratic process to take root.”

The pledge is the first from a nation in the western hemisphere for offers of boots on the ground after Haiti’s Prime Minister and other top officials requested the immediate deployment of foreign troops in early October.

Holness likening the aid that Haiti has received so far from the international community to buckets of water to help put out a raging fire.
