8282: CANA: OAS assistant secretary general to visit Haiti (fwd)

From: Max Blanchet <maxblanchet@worldnet.att.net>

Washington, CANA - Secretary General of the Organisation of 
American States (OAS) Cesar Gaviria has requested Assistant 
Secretary General Luigi R. Einaudi to visit Haiti from June 13 to 15. 

Gaviria made the request on Monday following the adoption of a 
resolution on "Support for Democracy in Haiti", by the XXXI Regular 
Session of the General Assembly held recently in Costa Rica and a 
meeting of member states, permanent observers and relevant 
inter-american agencies convened by the secretary general. 

The purpose of the resolution considered the establishment of a 
"credible, independent and neutral Provisional Electoral Council" 
by June 25, 2001. It is seen as a "necessary step to create a climate 
of confidence conducive to a broad based agreement among the 
government of Haiti, political parties and civil society, and other 
relevant institutions of Haitian society, with a view of resolving the 
political crisis and strengthening democracy and respect for human 
rights in Haiti."
