Preval Goes to Washington

Newly Elected Haitian President Rene Preval is visiting the States this week.

The first stop is New York City to meet with Kofi Annnan.

The second stop is Washington to meet a group of Congressmen and then pay a visit to President Bush. IADB, IMF, OAS and World Bank meetings will follow.

Preval has been characterized as an ally of ousted leader Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Aristide’s relationship with the US was so bad he reckons he was deposed by a US sponsored coup.

Preval’s visit is an oportunity for the US to start in good terms with the new Haitian administration. With so little regional allies left this is not a chance to miss.
