Lebanon: Foreign Relations

Volume 478: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what his policy is on official contact with the government of Lebanon; and if he will make a statement. (210451)

The UK has contact with the current Government of Lebanon, both at official and ministerial level. During a visit to Lebanon from 8-9 June, I met President Suleiman, Prime Minister Siniora and Speaker Berri.

The Doha Accord of 21 May 2008 called for the formation of a new National Unity Government. We hope that this Government can be appointed swiftly.
