Jumblat: Controlling the Situation is Nasrallah's, Hariri's Responsibility

Druze leader Walid Jumblat said committing to calm media rhetoric was essential for the fight against issues like the false witnesses and indictments to be issued by the International Tribunal possibly against Hizbullah members.

"It is important to adhere to a calm rhetoric as a gateway to engage into political debate in a calm atmosphere on how to organize a joint confrontation to the issues of false witnesses and the indictment," Jumblat said in remarks published Thursday by As-Safir newspaper.

"Controlling the situation is primarily the responsibility of Mr. Hassan Nasrallah and Premier Saad Hariri," Jumblat stressed.

He said it was now the responsibility of Lebanese judicial authorities to hold the false witnesses accountable and take this case "until the end."
