PORT-AU-PRINCE — On the one-year anniversary of his ascension as Haiti’s interim Prime Minister, Ariel Henry said he is committed to bring peace to the country, hold elections and combat inflation and gas shortage.

“This is the only condition that will allow us to continue importing fuel and make it available permanently,”  Henry said in a July 21 address, meant to be a sort of state-of-the-union update to the nation.

“Nor must dialogue be an opportunity to waste time in useless quarrels and to needlessly prolong the suffering of people  and this situation of chronic disability,” Henry added, referring to competing approaches on moving the country forward.
