International support for Haiti will be critical as the United Nations continues the drawdown of its mission in the Caribbean country, the organization's top official there told the Security Council on Tuesday.

The mission, known as MINUSTAH, will be replaced in October by a follow-on operation that will focus on the rule of law and human rights.
