Condi Rice pledges aid to Haiti

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice vowed over $200 million in economic aid to Haiti during a visit by Haitian Prime Minister Jacques-Edouard Alexis to Washington. Rice justified the continuing aid to Haiti by observing that that “the Haitian government is making good progress on behalf of its people.” Nevertheless, Rice advised Haiti’s government to make economic reform “a front burner issue” along with counter-narcotics efforts.
