Antigua and Barbuda has committed to sending troops to Haiti as part of the multinational force being lead by Kenya.
The Kenyan lead force has also gained support from other Caribbean nations such as The Bahamas and Jamaica.
According to Loop News, the decision to send members of the Antigua and Barbuda Defence Force (ABDF) to the French-speaking Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country was taken following a meeting last Friday on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.
A statement, from Antigua’s Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) said there was no determination at this point on how many members of the ABDF will be dispatched to Haiti.
Kenya plans to send 1,000 security personnel to Haiti. Their efforts will be backed by a $100 million fund provided by the United States.
