Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea stated on Thursday that Prime Minister Najib Miqati is attempting to assume his responsibilities regarding the funding of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, adding that even if the government were to be transformed into a caretaking one, it wouldn’t be able to escape funding the international court.
He said: “The government will incur negative consequences if it shies away from its duty to fund the STL.”
On Hizbullah, he remarked: “The situation cannot endure as it cannot maintain is military and security branches because that will weigh heavily on its community and Lebanon itself.”
Addressing the situation in Syria, Geagea stated: “The international community has taken a decisive stand on it.”
