WASHINGTON, March 30. /TASS/. The United States supports the formation of a new Palestinian government, US State Department Spokesman Matthew Miller said in a statement.

"We welcome the nomination of a new Palestinian Authority (PA) cabinet to serve the Palestinian people," he said. The diplomat noted that the US "looks forward to working with the new cabinet to promote peace, security, and prosperity" and expects "this new government to deliver on credible reforms." He stressed that the new cabinet is essential in establishing stability in the region.

Earlier, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas approved the new cabinet led by Mohammad Mustafa, former Chairman of the Palestine Investment Fund (PIF). The cabinet’s agenda includes providing aid to Palestinians, above all, the residents of the Gaza Strip, as well as rebuilding the embattled enclave and Palestinian territories in the West Bank.
