Last quote by Matthew Rycroft

What we now need is a newly configured mission which is focused on the rule of law and human rights in Haiti. Peacekeepers do fantastic work but they are very expensive and they should be used only when needed. We strongly support the ending of this mission turning it into something else. And I think we'll see the same thing elsewhere.feedback
