Haiti's main political forces agreed on Wednesday to continue exchanges to reach a consensus after their meetings had been suspended several times over differences.
The decision was considered based on a letter from the Prime Minister, who said that "it is not necessary to be 100 percent in agreement on all issues and all details, to decide to move forward together."
The Prime Minister called for the need to initiate "unconditionally serious and in-depth discussions on the essential issues on which there is already a convergence of views."
The factions led by the Haitian Prime Minister and the leader of Montana, Magalie Comeau Denis, established the representatives who will attend the next meetings.
