Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Joey Hood called on Lebanon’s leaders to “put aside partisan political differences, and show enough flexibility to form a government that is ready and capable of real and fundamental reform so that the Lebanese people can realize their full potential.”In an interview with Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, he stressed that “the people deserve a government urgently to implement the necessary reforms to save the country’s deteriorating economy, which is going through a crisis due to decades of corruption and mismanagement.”

“We and the international community have made it clear that concrete measures remain critical to unlocking Lebanon’s long-term structural support,” he added.

He continued, “I would like to emphasize that the United States stands with the Lebanese people as they recover and rebuild from worsening crises, including the economic crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the horrific explosion in the Port of Beirut. On August 4, President Biden announced that The United States is providing nearly $100 million in additional humanitarian assistance to Lebanon, on top of nearly $560 million in humanitarian assistance over the past two years. This humanitarian assistance will benefit vulnerable populations, including Syrian refugees, and the communities that host them.

He pointed out that “the demarcation of the maritime borders is a decision taken by Israel and Lebanon, and the United States is ready to facilitate negotiations on the maritime borders on the basis on which we started these discussions.”
