7126: President Bush letter to President Aristide (fwd)
February 13, 2001 letter from President George W. Bush addressed to:
His Excellency, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, President of the Republic of Haiti
"Dear Mr. President: As you return to Haiti's Presidency, let me extend to
you my best wishes and those of the American people. Haiti's many challenges
will require your steadfast leadership in order to secure a prosperous and
democratic future for the people of Haiti.
"You have pledged to resolve the controversies that impede Haiti's progress.
Toward that end, your participation in the internationally mediated dialogue
will demonstrate your personal commitment to this pledge. The eight-point
agreement you made in December is a good starting point for realigning the
relationship between our two countries and for advancing the best interests
of the Haitian people.
"Again, I encourage your personal attention to these important matters.
Ambassador B. Dean Curran, serving as my personal representative, is
available to work with you on ways our two countries can work together to
benefit the Haitian people."
