The Legislative Assembly of Bolivia approved unanimously authorize the dispatch of military troops on a peacekeeping mission to Haiti.
This part of the commitment by the Bolivian government with the United Nations (PNU) from May 1997, reported Saturday officers to international media sources.
The troops will be composed of 205 troops that will remain for six months in Haitian territory and depart into two groups.
The first contingent will leave for Haiti on 17 May and the second a week later will indicate a note of the Assembly of Bolivia.
In that order, the text indicates that the absence of these troops will not affect the security structure that will surround the G77 and China summit to be held in the Andean country in June.
Since 2004, Haiti is under occupation of the Mission of the United Nations to achieve stabilization in Haiti (MINUSTAH) following the US-led military intervention that toppled President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
Last December, the vice president of the Honduran Congress, Mauricio Oliva, revealed that 150 soldiers in his country will travel to Haiti to join the peace mission undertaken by the UN.
