Installation of Congolese Government
Statement by Sean McCormack, State Department Spokesman
February 26, 2007
We welcome the installation of the new government of the Democratic Republic of Congo, as the result of last year’s successful democratic elections. This event marks the culmination of Congo’s long Transition process, and the beginning of a new era for the Congo. We congratulate the Congolese people on their historic achievement, and we look forward to working closely with the new government. We renew our commitment to support Congolese efforts to carry forward this historic transformation through political, economic, and social development in conditions of peace and security throughout the country.
