Two Armenians named Ministers in Lebanon's new government

PanARMENIAN.Net - Two of the Ministers in Lebanon's new government have Armenian roots, Aztag Daily reports.

In particular, Avedis Guidanian was reappointed in the post of the Minister of Tourism, while Richard Kouyoumjian was named the Minister of Social Affairs.

The 30-member cabinet formed by Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri has four women, including the interior minister - a first for Lebanon.

Hariri's reforms are expected to unlock nearly $11bn (£8bn) in pledged international aid and loans.
