Negotiations update

Assistant Secretary-General Luigi Einaudi and Caricom special envoy Julian Hunt arrived yesterday in Port-au-Prince to coax the Haitian parties back to the negotiating table. A series of meetings has begun. Yesterday the OAS and Caricom representatives met informally with Convergence representatives at the U.S. embassy. A more formal meeting was set for 6 p.m. today. A meeting between the government and OAS was set for noon. The OAS's spokesman in Haiti, Sergio Romero Cuevas, does not foresee an immediate resumption of negotiations. He says the Haitian authorities need to establish a favorable political climate. The OAS will for now use shuttle diplomacy between the parties. Meanwhile President Aristide is in Rome for a meeting of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, where he will receive an award. He may return by Wednesday, June 12.
