BEIRUT, May 16 (KUNA) -- Deputy Speaker of the Duma Alexander Turchin has said Wednesday that his country supported setting up the international tribunal to try the suspects in the murder of the Lebanese Prime Minister, Rafiq Al-Hariri.
International tribunals have been a trend promoted worldwide over the past period and had positive and negative aspects, he told reporters following talks with the Lebanese president Emile Lahoud.
He added that establishing such tribunals required hard, amble and accurate work in terms of the relevant documents describing the process as jewellery cutting.
The best jewellery cutters are in Lebanon and this is the best potential for the Lebanese people to conclude a solution, he added.
As for referring the tribunal issue to the Security Council, the Duma official said Russians had not been acquainted with any such draft resolutions adding that work on the tribunal did not require hurrying up but accuracy.
Underscoring the strong bilateral relations, Turchin said that Lebanon had the capabilities of solving its internal problems with no foreign interference which is decisively rejected by Russia.
On his part, president Lahoud said in a statement that the external intervention in Lebanon's internal affairs "impedes accord among the Lebanese and prevents their meeting to agree on what is good for their country." He warned against establishing the tribunal under the Seventh Chapter of the UN Charter.
Turchin had had talks with the Speaker of the Lebanese parliament, Nabih Berri, on the developments in Lebanon and the region. (end) oh.msa KUNA 162036 May 07NNNN
