  • WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he’s encouraged by progress Haiti is making to clear away what he calls “political roadblocks” and hold overdue elections.

    He adds that U.S. and international aid that flowed to Haiti after a devastating 2010 earthquake has helped the country turn a corner. Obama says Haiti’s economy is growing, security is improving, infrastructure is being rebuilt and earthquake rubble has been removed.

    Obama commented at the start of an Oval Office meeting Thursday with Haitian President Michel Martelly.
