Connelly: World to Assess Relationship with Miqati’s Cabinet Based on its Make-up

U.S. Ambassador Maura Connelly reiterated on Monday that the international community will assess its relationship with Premier-designate Najib Miqati’s government based on the make-up of the cabinet.

Connelly made the remark during talks with Speaker Nabih Berri in Ain el-Tineh, said a U.S. embassy statement.

The assessment will also be based on the government’s policy statement and the actions it takes in regard to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and Lebanon’s other international obligations, the statement said.

Connelly reiterated the continued U.S. “support for Lebanon’s sovereignty, stability, and prosperity, and called on the next Lebanese government to provide stability and promote justice for the people of Lebanon by honoring its international agreements.”
