Political Situation in Lebanon


Michael R. Pompeo, Secretary of State

In light of Prime Minister Hariri’s resignation, the United States calls on Lebanon’s political leaders to urgently facilitate the formation of a new government that can build a stable, prosperous, and secure Lebanon that is responsive to the needs of its citizens.


The peaceful demonstrations and expressions of national unity over the last 13 days have sent a clear message.  The Lebanese people want an efficient and effective government, economic reform, and an end to endemic corruption.  Any violence or provocative actions must stop, and we call upon Lebanon’s army and security services to continue to ensure the rights and safety of the protesters.
