Hariri: We Won't Let Rafik Hariri's Blood Go Waste

Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Wednesday warned that Lebanon will "not let the blood of Premier Rafik Hariri go waste."

Hariri, during Mustaqbal Movement's politburo meeting, underlined the importance of "ensuring internal stability and rallying behind Constitutional institutions in order to spare the Lebanese the atmosphere of chaos and out of respect for Arab's keenness on Lebanon's stability," his office said in a statement.

Hariri also stressed that the relationship with Damascus is a "priority" because it serves the interests of both Lebanon and Syria.

He renewed commitment to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, pledging that Lebanon won't back down or accept any compromise on the Court.

The statement reminded that the STL is an international institution that stands on its own and is not subject to political balance.

"And most of all, we will not let the blood of martyr Premier Rafik Hariri go waste.

"This would be by patience and steadfastness.
