Foreign Secretary comments on the Doha Accord

Commenting on the agreement for Lebanon signed in Doha, the Foreign Secretary said;

"Today's announcement of an agreement for Lebanon, 'the Doha Accord', is a step forward from the conflict of last week. I pay tribute to Qatar and the Arab League, who did so much to make this agreement possible. It is now important that the agreement is implemented. I urge all sides to grasp this opportunity for Lebanon to move beyond the impasse that has blighted the country for so long. In this spirit I look forward to the swift election of a new President and the formation of a new unity government. Our support will continue to be firmly behind the government and people of Lebanon."
