US is considering lifting of embargo on the sale of weapons in Haiti
It may have not been noticeable, however, since 1993 Haiti has been under an embargo for the sale of weapons. This was imposed by the US government in 1993, following the military coup against former President Jean Bertrand Aristide. Now with stability improving in the country and a need to create a more professional Police and Military force to deal with crimes there is a need for the lifting of embargo on the sale of weapons.
The Assistant Secretary of State for the United States, William Brownfield, who visited Haiti in December 2011 gave the impression that the US government is willing to consider that. To reassure the US Government, Mario Andrésol presented a five-year plan to make Haiti national Police more effective in protecting the Haitian population
