STATEMENT ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE SPOKESPERSON FOR THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
Lebanon
The Secretary-General believes that the formation today of a new cabinet in Lebanon, following months of consultations under the auspices of President Michel Sleiman and Prime Minister Najib Mikati, is an important step toward establishing a functional, executive government in Lebanon.
The Secretary-General hopes it will enable Lebanon to address the economic, political and security challenges facing the country and underlines the importance for Lebanese leaders to maintain a spirit of national dialogue and cooperation.
The Secretary-General looks forward to the finalization, as soon as possible, of the new Government’s platform. He expects the Government of Lebanon to reiterate its commitment to the full implementation of Security Council Resolution 1701 and to all of Lebanon’s international obligations.
