UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon gave his “full support” on Wednesday to the Hariri tribunal investigating the assassination of the former Lebanese prime minister, AFP reported.

A spokesman said that Ban “emphasizes the importance that calm be preserved. The secretary general further calls for continuing dialogue among all parties and respect for the constitution and the laws of Lebanon. He reiterates his full support for the independent work of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) ,” according to the report.

The Spokesperson said that Ban is monitoring closely Lebanese developments, adding the situation is fast evolving.

Lebanon’s unity government collapsed after Hezbollah and its allies pulled their 10 ministers from cabinet and one minister close to President Michel Suleiman announced his withdrawal, providing the necessary number of resignations for the government to collapse.
