 Formation of New Cabinet 


QUESTION: Prime Minister Siniora in Lebanon announced the formation of a new cabinet today.

MR. MCCORMACK: Yes.

QUESTION: What’s the U.S. reaction to the formation of --

MR. MCCORMACK: Well, we welcome the formation of this new cabinet. It is a long political process that has led us to this point. And it is a process that ultimately was a Lebanese one. There were a lot of instances along the way where there was evidence of outside interference. But ultimately, the Lebanese, with the assistance of some of their fellow Arab states playing a useful role, were able to resolve their differences to mutual satisfaction.

Now, of course, this cabinet does include members of Hezbollah, as did the last one. We will not deal with those members of the cabinet. But we look forward to working with the Prime Minister as well as his new Foreign Minister.

QUESTION: Thank you.

MR. MCCORMACK: Okay.
