Security Council calls on Haitians to refrain from violence

    UNITED NATIONS, Feb. 14 (Xinhuanet) -- The UN Security Council on Tuesday urged all parties in Haiti to remain calm while the final results of the election are being certified.

    Council President John Bolton of the United States told reporters at UN headquarters in New York that the members of the Council hoped that the counting of ballots and the remaining steps in the electoral process mandated by Haitian law will continue to be transparent and meet international standards.

    "They strongly urge all parties to respect the results of the election and refrain from violence," the U.S. ambassador added.

    The 15-member Council called on Haitian political leaders to live up to the high expectations of their people at this critical juncture by demonstrating statesmanship and moderation and remaining engaged in the process of national reconciliation, Bolton said.

    The Council reiterated their full support for the efforts of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) and the Transitional Government to ensure a secure and stable environment in Haiti, he observed.

    Meanwhile, the Council unanimously passed a resolution that extended MINUSTAH's mandate until Aug. 15 with the intention to renew for further periods. Enditem
