Statement by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson

France welcomes the appointment of new Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam, who won a broad consensus during the parliamentary consultations conducted by President Suleiman. This support is an encouraging sign.

This appointment must be followed as swiftly as possible by the formation of a government that will guarantee the proper functioning of the institutions and notably the holding of parliamentary elections within the constitutional deadlines, in the interest of Lebanon and its stability.
