Following his Monday meeting with US Ambassador to Lebanon Michele Sison, Kataeb Party leader Amin Gemayel said that only in Lebanon does justice threaten national security and jeopardize the government’s credibility, according to a statement issued by the Kataeb.
Gemayel’s statement comes after Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah last month rejected a potential Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) indictment of his party’s members for the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. March 8 coalition figures have warned against the tribunal, calling it an Israeli project that could incite sectarian strife.
The statement reported that Gemayel discussed with Sison the current domestic and regional situation, adding that the Kataeb leader also called on the US to keep supporting Lebanon.
Sison’s visit comes as her term as ambassador nears an end, with the US nominating Maura Connelly as her replacement.
According to the statement, the US ambassador said her country is concerned about Lebanon’s interests and security.
