Saudi FM: STL Critics Had Voted in Favor of Its Creation

Saudi Arabia “calls on all parties in Lebanon to deal with the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s indictment calmly and rationally, away from tensions, and to avoid any escalation,” Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said Tuesday.

In a joint press conference with his British counterpart William Hague in the Saudi port city of Jeddah, al-Faisal urged the Lebanese to “work on fulfilling justice and to resort to reason,” hoping the release of the indictment will not affect stability in Lebanon.

“Everyone voted in favor of establishing the tribunal, including the political groups opposing the outcome of the tribunal at the moment,” the Saudi top diplomat noted.
