WASHINGTON, July 22 (Reuters) – The United States on Thursday announced a special envoy to help coordinate U.S. assistance in Haiti, including efforts promoting long-term peace and elections after the assassination of Haitian president Jovenel Moise this month.
Daniel Foote, a career member of the Senior Foreign Service, will work alongside the U.S. Ambassador Michele Sison, the State Department said in a statement.
"The Special Envoy will engage with Haitian and international partners to facilitate long-term peace and stability and support efforts to hold free and fair presidential and legislative elections," the department said.
"He will also work with partners to coordinate assistance efforts in several areas, including humanitarian, security, and investigative assistance."
Foote previously served twice as deputy chief of mission in Haiti and was the American ambassador to Zambia until January 2020.
