France calls for ‘competent and capable’ government in Lebanon

France urges the formation of a “competent and capable” government in Lebanon to carry out reforms, after a year of political deadlock.

The foreign ministry says it is “urgent” to form such a government and implement reforms “essential to the recovery of the country,” calling on “all Lebanese leaders to act in this direction as quickly as possible.”

Earlier, Lebanese lawmakers tasked ex-premier and billionaire Najib Mikati with forming a government and ending one year of political deadlock that has crippled the economy.
