U.N. Members Vote Unanimously To End Haiti Peacekeeping Mission Blamed For Bringing Cholera To Country

New York Times: U.N. Votes Unanimously to End Peacekeeping Mission in Haiti
“The United Nations Security Council voted unanimously on Thursday to end its 13-year-long peacekeeping mission in Haiti, and replace its blue-helmeted soldiers with police officers. … [The mission] became arguably best known for introducing a deadly cholera strain to the country — and then refusing for years to take responsibility for it. … [In her remarks, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley] did not address the cholera outbreak, nor how the United Nations can compensate survivors…” (Sengupta, 4/13).
