US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has met with UN special envoy for Lebanon Terje Roed-Larsen to discuss the current situation in Lebanon, the State Department said Saturday.

In her meeting Friday with Norwegian Roed-Larsen, Clinton “emphasized the United States’ commitment to Lebanon’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, unity, and political independence,” the statement read.

Roed-Larsen is UN special envoy for Resolution 1559, a 2004 measure calling for free and fair presidential elections in Lebanon, the withdrawal of all remaining foreign forces in the country, and the “disbanding and disarmament of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias.”

On Friday, Vice President Joe Biden spoke by phone with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and assured him of US support as a UN tribunal probes the the 2005 assassination of his father, which continues to stoke tensions in Lebanon.

    Miss. Clinton should be worried about protecting her secret cables, so she would not embarrass herself and allies.
    But bad things happen for good reason, so the world gets a glimpse at the undeniable hypocrisy of politics in action .
    The fig leaf has fallen off,and the “not so big secret” is exposed. No one will take you seriously anymore.
    All of your nonsense , public support of Lebanon is meaningless.If the US cared about Lebanon’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence It would have never allowed Israel to occupy Lebanese territories.It would never have approved Israel continuous violation of Lebanese airspace and territories.It would have allowed the Lebanese armed forces to be armed with modern weapons in order to protect its territories.
