“We are very pleased that the new Cabinet in Lebanon, led by Najib Mikati, has won vote of confidence from the Parliament and taken office,” the Ministry said. “We have full confidence that the new Government, which has come to power after an extended period, will effectively address the challenges facing Lebanon and will come up with the solutions needed by the country.”
