France says Lebanese political forces must form government without delay


PARIS (Reuters) – The French Foreign Ministry said on Monday that all Lebanese political forces must keep their promise to set up a government quickly.

In response to whether Paris would accept a delay in creating a government, spokeswoman Agnes von der Muhll said Lebanese political parties had been repeatedly reminded of the need to quickly create a government to be able to implement essential reforms.

“All Lebanese political forces have endorsed this goal. It is up to them to translate this commitment into action without delay. It is their responsibility, ”she said.

A deadline agreed with France expires on Tuesday.
