G20 Statement on Haiti

Mexico City, January 14, 2010

The Group of 20 expresses its solidarity and sincere condolences to the people and Government of the Republic of Haiti for the devastation caused by the earthquakes of January 12, resulting in the tragic loss of human lives, injury and considerable material damages.

We also convey our deepest sympathy to the United Nations and to all countries participating in the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti for the tragic loss of their team members and the destruction of their headquarters.

Recognizing the urgent appeal made by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to the international community to urgently contribute with assistance, we the G20 reaffirm our readiness and commitment to send immediate economic and in kind assistance to attend to the basic human needs of the Haitian population at this time of hardship and will follow closely the relief and reconstruction process in that country.
