WAKEFIELD, Quebec — US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and the foreign minister of Canada on Monday urged Haiti's government to work harder on their country's daunting problems.

Their comments came following a disputed presidential election late last month, which was held following a devastating earthquake and cholera epidemic.

"We understand that the government itself was badly damaged, individuals were traumatized, but there has to be a greater effort and there has to be a more focused approach toward problem solving," Clinton said in a news conference.

Clinton, Canadian Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon and Mexican Foreign Secretary Patricia Espinosa gathered in this small Quebec town near Ottawa to prepare for a meeting of their three heads of state early next year. During the summit, President Barack Obama and the his counterparts are expected to try to work more closely on trade and security.

But Haiti appeared to dominate the discussion Monday. Thousands were unable to vote in the Nov. 28 election, which was widely criticized. Both the U.N. and the Organization of American States confirmed reports of electoral violence, voter intimidation and ballot-box stuffing — although both organizations said the vote was still valid.
