August 9, 2010 - Iloubnan - Chatah confirms Cabinet commitment to STL-linked Ministerial Statement clause 13

BEIRUT - Prime Minister foreign affairs adviser Mohamad Chatah told Voice of Lebanon radio station on Monday that the Cabinet complied with the Ministerial Statement's clause 13 regarding the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. Chatah ensured that Prime Minister Saad Hariri could take no decision regarding the STL indictment because he was not the only party to be concerned by the matter, as many Lebanese were concerned too.
