UNITED NATIONS — As international attention turns to the long-term reconstruction of earthquake-stricken Haiti, U.N. officials pledged that the Haitian government would have full involvement and authority over the process.

"This relief and recovery process will not work without Haitian government ownership. They need to be in the lead," Tony Banbury, the principal deputy special representative of the secretary-general for the U.N. Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), told reporters via satellite on Monday.

"Of course there is a huge role for different components of the international community. We can be very helpful to the Haitian government, providing them clear information on our assessment of needs, the capabilities we can bring to bear, how best to deliver the assistance, et cetera. But the Haitian government needs to be the one taking responsibility for the big decisions that are going to affect their people," he said.
