of Venezuela , the long-standing and close diplomatic relationship between Venezuela and the United States has deteriorated. Chávez's stance as an OPEC price hawk has raised the price of oil for the United States.

Long-running ties between the U.S. (Military of the United States) and Venezuelan militaries were severed. Chávez has been intensely critical of U.S. economic (Economy of the United States) and foreign policy: in Iraq, Haiti, Kosovo, Free Trade Area of the Americas and in numerous other areas.

Supporters note that even in the face of its limitations, it would not be accurate to conclude that GSP has failed to benefit developing countries, though some concede GSP has benefited developing countries unevenly. Some assert that, for most of its history, GSP has benefited "richer developing" countries - in early years Mexico, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia, more recently Brazil and India - while providing virtually no assistance to the world's least developed countries, such as Haiti, Nepal, and most countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The U.S., however, has closed some of these gaps through supplemental preference programs like the African Growth and Opportunity Act and a newer program for Haiti, and Europe has done the same with Everything But Arms.

There is a myriad of places of the world where boat people have undertaken voyages. A particularly frequent destination has been the USA, which has been the objective of boat people from Cuba, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic. Since 1995, the US wet feet, dry feet policy has generally allowed Cubans who reach dry land in the U.S. to stay while those intercepted at sea by the U.S. Coast Guard are returned to Cuba. Elsewhere boat people have originated journeys in Morocco, Vietnam and Albania. Many boat people have been attacked by pirates on the high seas, or have been turned away by governments and forced to return, sometimes even to countries where they were also present illegally.

Haiti's regional, historical, and ethno-linguistic position is unique for several reasons. Originally inhabited by the indigenous Taíno people, the island was first discovered by Christopher Columbus during his first voyage across the Atlantic in 1492. When Columbus first landed in Haiti (western Hispaniola), he had thought he had found India or Asia. His flagship, the ''Santa Maria (Santa Maria (ship))'', sank after running aground on 25 December in the north coast of present-day Haiti.
Gaining its independence in 1804, Haiti was the first independent nation (nation-state) of Latin America and the Caribbean, the second republic successful in a war of independence against a European colonial power in the Americas, the only nation in the western hemisphere to have defeated three European superpowers (Britain (United Kingdom), France (Kingdom of France), and Spain (Imperial Spain)), and the only nation in the world established as a result of a successful slave revolt.
With 10.4 million people, Haiti is the most populous full member-state of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The country is also a member of the Latin Union. In 2012, Haiti announced its intention to seek associate membership status in the African Union. It has the lowest Human Development Index (List of countries by Human Development Index) in the Americas. Political violence has occurred regularly throughout its history (History of Haiti), leading to government instability. Most recently, in February 2004, a ''coup d'état (2004 Haitian coup d'état)'' originating in the north of the country forced the resignation and exile of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. A provisional government took control with security provided by the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH). Michel Martelly, the current president, was elected in the 2011 general election (Haitian general election, 2011).
