After China and potential Westerners reached a last-minute compromise, the United Nations Security Council convened in Haiti. The mission was extended to nine months.
The council unanimously approved a resolution extending the mandate less than Washington’s expected year, but more than the six months Beijing wanted.
The referendum came just after 10:00 pm for GMT, a few hours before political work, which was extended to July 15, 2022, in a country that is in the throes of a crisis worsening following the assassination of President Jovnell Moyes in July.
Beijing made it clear that the order could not be extended for one year.
The nine-month agreement includes a six-month assessment by the UN Secretary-General.
BINUH (United Nations Joint Office in Haiti) was established in October 2019, after 15 years of UN law enforcement, and is subject to friction between Washington and Beijing.
His mandate includes strengthening political stability and governance on the island with strong American influence.
Diplomats have indicated that China wants to punish Haiti for recognizing Taiwan.
Earlier this year, the Security Council agreed to postpone elections in Haiti until the second half of 2022.
