Larijani Hails New Lebanese Cabinet

“The formation of a new Lebanese government will help strengthen the country's unity and position in the region,” Larijani said in a telephone conversation with his Lebanese counterpart Nabih Berri on Tuesday.

The Iranian official also praised Berri's efforts and his decent discretion with regards to the issues of cabinet formation and unity government in Lebanon.

Berri described the announcement of a new cabinet as “a national necessity that will open a bright horizon before the Lebanese nation.”

Lebanon's top legislative official highlighted the two nations' determination to promote their bilateral relations and stressed the need for the expansion of parliamentary cooperation between Tehran and Beirut.

On Monday, Lebanon's Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati announced the make-up of his cabinet following talks with Berri and President Michel Sleiman.

In late January, Sleiman issued a decree appointing Mikati as the country's new prime minister after the Hezbollah-backed figure won 68 votes in the 128-seat parliament, following two days of talks between lawmakers and the president.

Caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri was also seeking reappointment after his government collapsed following mass resignation of ministers in a dispute over a US-backed tribunal probing the 2005 assassination of his father and former Premier Rafiq Hariri.

In a televised speech shortly after his installation, Mikati reached out to all Lebanese factions, calling on them to overcome differences and participate in an inclusive unity government.
