Lebanon will hold its first cabinet meeting in three months on Jan. 24, Al Jadeed TV channel said, citing Economy Minister Amin Salam.

Hezbollah and Amal, two powerful groups which back several ministers, said on Saturday they would end a boycott of cabinet sessions, which had been blocking any meetings. The announcement opened the way for ministers to meet for the first time since Oct. 12.
