    Haiti requests the status of Associate Member of the African Union

    Haiti is currently participating in the 18th International Conference of Heads of State and Government held in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia with the participation of 2,500 delegates from around the world. Several heads of state from Europe, America and Asia are present as observers.

    The Republic of Haiti requested on this occasion the status of Associate Member of the African Union, according to the Chief Cabinet of Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Ambassador Ady Jean Gardy which represents our country at this meeting. The request of adhesion of Haiti to the African Union to the Conference of Heads of State was extensively applauded.

    The head of the delegation of Haiti, Mr. Ady Jean Gardy, on behalf of the Republic of Haiti, highlighted the importance of such an approach, which aims for the first time to integrate Haiti into the family of African countries as Associate Member of the African Union, determined to establish exchanges at all levels of the business diplomacy with African states. During a press conference in Addis Ababa, relayed by RFI, Mr. Ady Jean Gardy recalled the keen interest of President Joseph Michel Martelly, of Prime Minister Gary Conille and of Minister of Foreign Affairs of Haiti, Laurent Lamothe in this process of accession of Haiti to the African Union.

    The chief of Cabinet of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Ady Jean Gardy, who has the rank of Ambassador, took advantage of the 18th Conference of Heads of State and Government to increase contacts and talks with the Ethiopian authorities and to other Heads of State of passage in Addis Ababa, on behalf of the business diplomacy and of development advocated by the Minister Laurent Lamothe.

    Recall that this conference also participates Ban Ki Moon, UN Secretary General, assisted by Joseph Deiss, President of the UN General Assembly, along with fifty Heads of State, including Denis Sassou Nguesso, President of the Congo, of Jakaya Mrisho Kilwete, President of Tanzania, of Allasssan Ouatara, President of Côte d'Ivoire or of Ms. Ellen Johnson, the President of Liberia. Several other African heads of state, including of Burkina Faso, of the Equatorial Guinea, of Gabon, of Ghana, of Mauritania, of Rwanda, of Sudan, of Togo, of the Republic of Sahrawi, of Tunisia or of Nigeria took the opportunity to announce their intention to strengthen their diplomatic relations with Haiti as soon as possible.

    Mr. Ady Jean Gardy on behalf of the Republic of Haiti has informed the representatives of various governments represented, of the intention of the Haitian government to accredit a diplomatic mission to the African Union. He announced a possible African tour of resident of the Republic and of Minister of Foreign Affairs Laurent Lamothe. Finally he promised to send the instructions from the Foreign Minister of Haiti to the Committee of 10 Heads of State that was formed in Addis Ababa to provide them with suggestions of Haiti regarding an urgent reform of the UN system and of structures of the African Union.

    Haiti should be focused on building CARICOM ties first.

    clearly reaching beyond regional lines to broaden you economics ties is a brilliant move.

    ok so this proved my point...Haiti could straddle being African and Caribbean at the same time but they still need to build the Caribbean connection for logical reasons.

    Haiti joined the African Union

    The news is almost unnoticed. Until then mere "observer", Haiti, the first black republic in history, became, in early February in Addis Ababa, "full associate member" of the African Union (AU).

    Haiti is the first non-African to become a member of the African Union. February 4 at the AU summit in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, the Pearl of the Antilles has traded his status of "observer" to that of "associate member". A first that will be formalized at the next AU summit held in June in Malawi, to the delight of Kpatindé Francis, a journalist from Benin, who was impatient to see Africa bear a hand to the first black republic.

    If Haiti in 2012 was in need of a boost from its African cousins, Mr. Kpatindé reminds us that it is Haiti that was once the defense of the black continent. First black republic, independent since 1804, Haiti has often been in the past the voice of African countries in search of independence.


    The heads of state meeting in Addis Ababa were warmly welcomed, and understandably, the return of Haiti in the African family, recalling the diplomatic efforts made by this country in 1945 to the advent of African states free, his denunciations of the invasion of Ethiopia by Mussolini's Italy, its progressive stance against the war in Algeria, support for the independence of Libya and assistance to African Democratic Rally, this great Pan-African political formation that accompanied many countries of the continent to international sovereignty.

    Haiti is interested in Africa? It is in the order of things. All those who, like me, have lived in this beautiful country are hardly surprised. The third island [The Dominican Republic occupies the eastern part of the island] in apnea for over two centuries, after all, most "African" States of South America and the Caribbean. Haiti, like many African countries, is recurrently plagued by instability and violence, while its population has languished in misery. Independent on 1 January 1804, shortly after the United States (1776), but well ahead of Colombia (1810), Argentina (1816), Brazil (1822) and Canada (1867), Haiti is lagging behind everything except literature, poetry, painting, music, in other words, what is the soul of a people.

    Africans would do well to pay more attention to this piece of Caribbean history, a land that is played, perhaps, their own destiny. Haiti is both a wonderful future projection and a living laboratory from which can emerge the best and the worst. In this, Haiti, "where the blackness stood up for the first time" (the formula is of Aimé Césaire [1913-2008]), is both our past and our future.

    everything is not about benefit darling

    Haiti has never support resolution against Cuba and Venezuela despite us resistance and support

    it's all about being close to people who look like US and who share common interest

    Senegal had offers free land for Haitian following the earthquake despite our long distance

    we are as closer to them more than you can imagine

    besides

    Africa can have a more future potential impact on Haiti than all the Caribbean itself
