Top U.N. official for Haiti, Sandra Honore, said on Thursday, July 20, 2017 peacekeepers have accomplished their mission of stabilizing the Western hemisphere’s poorest nation. Honore said Haiti today “is far different” than it was in 2004, when the U.N. deployed peacekeeping troops following a rebellion that left the country on the brink of collapse.

The U.N. has had troops on the ground in Haiti for over a decade. The soldiers were sent to help provide security but the scandals were on the rise.

Now, the United Nations has voted to pull the peacekeepers out.

Can Haiti handle it, and was the U.N. mission accomplished?
