Lebanon – from the press briefing (20 Dec. 2019)


Q. Do you think that the appointment of Hassan Diab as prime minister of Lebanon can facilitate the reforms needed to secure international financial support?

A. It is not up to us to comment on the composition of the future Lebanese government. It is up to the Lebanese leaders to do so with the greater good of all Lebanese people in mind. The sole criterion must be the effectiveness of this government in order to bring about the reforms expected by the people.
