Statements by the Spokesperson

The European Union congratulates Joanna Wronecka on her appointment as Special Coordinator for Lebanon, United Nations Office of the Special Coordinator for Lebanon (UNSCOL). We also take this opportunity to salute the tireless efforts of her predecessor, Ján Kubiš.

These are critical times for Lebanon. The country’s multiple crises continue deteriorating and the Lebanese people are the first to suffer from this unsustainable situation. It is time that the Lebanese political forces to put aside their differences and work for the interest of Lebanon. The EU urges the Lebanese leadership, once again, to take responsibility by swiftly forming a credible and accountable government capable of delivering on the necessary reforms.

We look forward to working closely with Joanna Wronecka in her role and  strengthening our cooperation and joint work with the UN in Lebanon for the stability and prosperity of the country.
