Lebanon is an independent republic and a member of the United Nations and the Arab League. After 20 years’ French mandatory regime, its independence was proclaimed at Beirut on 26 Nov., 1941. On 27 Dec., 1943, an agreement was signed between representatives of the French National Committee of Liberation and of Lebanon, by which most of the powers and capacities exercised hitherto by France under mandate were transferred as from 1 Jan., 1944, to the Lebanese government. The evacuation of foreign troops was completed in Dec., 1946.
