Minister Jean Rodolphe Joazile to form armed forces soon
Haitian Defense Minister, Jean Rodolphe Joazile announced that Haiti will soon be forming its armed forces. He reported that this decision came after the support received from France, Brazil, Uruguay and Ecuador. He reported that the initial batch of recruits will be trained in the countries supporting Haiti and that 50 men from different backgrounds are already undergoing training in Ecuador and will be replacing the Ecuador's armed forces operational in Petite-Riviere in Artibonite. Joazile said that no labels will be attached to the armed forces because all that matters is to have Haitian armed forces who can take control and protect the vulnerable and fragile nation.
