Security Council to Address Ongoing Threats against STL During Closed-Door Talks


Informed sources at the United Nations Security Council revealed that the council is set to discuss the ongoing threats against the functioning of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon during closed-door consultations on Friday.

The meetings were scheduled after internal consultations in Lebanon failed to ease the tensions on the matter, while Cabinet session was postponed and the majority of opposition members boycotted Thursday's National Dialogue session.

The sources told As Safir Friday that the Lebanese contingent at the U.N. had sought in the past few days to postpone the discussion of Lebanon at the Security Council out of a concern that it may lead to more tensions in the country.
