US welcomes new Libyan cabinet
US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton welcomed Wednesday the formation of a new Libyan cabinet, DPA reported.
Libyan Prime Minister Abdel Rahim al-Keib announced Tuesday the formation of the country's new interim government, which will lead the country until parliamentary elections are held next year. Polls are expected to be held by the end of June.
Clinton called the move "a significant step in Libya's transition to a true democracy that is inclusive and representative of all Libyans."
The United States would work with the new interim government on issues such as protecting the rights of Libyans, consolidating control over the country's many militia groups and transitioning to an elected government, she said.
