U.S. welcomes formation of Haiti's interim government, Blinken says

July 20 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Tuesday the formation of Haiti's interim government is a positive and necessary step, nearly two weeks after President Jovenel Moise was gunned down in a murder plot.

"The United States welcomes efforts by Haiti's political leadership to come together in choosing an interim Prime Minister and a unity cabinet to chart a path forward in the wake of the heinous assassination of Jovenel Moïse," Blinken said in a statement.
