FIBA, the international basketball federation, has reinstated Lebanon's membership, following a 10-month ban.
In a letter addressed to Walid Nasser, the president of the Lebanese Basketball Federation, FIBA said the LBF is "reinstated with full rights" and "teams may take part in all FIBA competitions and activities."
Lebanon was suspended in July 2013 because of political and judicial interference in its domestic championship, and the LBF's inability to resolve the dispute. The decision prevented the national team from taking part in the Asia Championship in the Philippines last year.
FIBA said it hopes "events which caused the suspicion ... are behind us."
