U.S. President Joe Biden said Thursday the United States is only sending marines to bolster security at its embassy in Haiti but the idea of sending American troops into the Caribbean country was "not on the agenda."

"We're only sending American Marines to our embassy," said Biden when addressing the situation in Haiti during a joint press conference at the White House with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"The idea of sending American forces to Haiti is not on the agenda," Biden said.

Haiti's interim government has asked the United States and the United Nations to deploy troops to the country to secure key infrastructure in the aftermath of the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise.

Moise was shot dead early on July 7 at his Port-au-Prince home. The assassination occured more than two months before the country's presidential and legislative elections, which are scheduled for Sept. 26.
