Lebanon MP: No legal basis for accusations against STL


March 14 MP Nouhad al-Mashnouq said Thursday : “The tribunal is an international authority … and all assumptions and accusations against it are exaggerations that have no legal or constitutional basis.”

He said the Lebanese-Saudi-Syrian summit is a “major Arab guarantee for Lebanon’s stability.”

He described Saudi King Abdullah and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s visit to Lebanon on Friday as a historic event that would present the necessary guarantees to all sides and help them better understand the nature of the visit.

He added that Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s initiatives towards Syria have turned the Syrian leadership into an honest mediator that deals with all Lebanese powers, “but this does not indicate a change in Syria’s stance towards the Resistance.” Naharnet
