“That's correct… It's still under review,” Psaki said during a press briefing, adding that the proposal has not been ruled out.
Psaki earlier said that the US government has received a request for additional assistance in the investigation into the assassination of President Jovenel Moise.
The Caribbean nation’s President was gunned down at his residence outside Port-au-Prince on 7 July by a team of heavily-armed international assassins. His wife, first lady Martine Moise, who suffered three bullet wounds during the attack, was airlifted to a hospital in Florida in critical condition.
19 suspects – 17 Colombian nationals and two American citizens of Haitian descent – have been arrested in the wake of the killing. The two arrested Americans, identified by the authorities as James Solages, 35, and Joseph Vincent, 55, have denied being mercenaries.
