SECRETARY-GENERAL, ON SECOND ANNIVERSARY OF HARIRI KILLING, REAFFIRMS COMMITMENT


TO HELPING LEBANON BRING PERPETRATORS OF ‘DESPICABLE ACT’ TO JUSTICE


The following statement was issued today by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:


On the second anniversary of the terrorist attack which took the lives of Rafik Hariri and 22 others, the United Nations reaffirms its commitment to assisting Lebanon in its efforts to uncover the truth and bring to justice the perpetrators of this despicable act.  On this sad occasion, the Secretary-General reiterates his sympathies to the families of all the victims and to the people and Government of Lebanon.


At this critical point for Lebanon, and as homage for other lives lost, it is important that all sides return to dialogue and seek the reconciliation, national unity and stability, for which Rafik Hariri worked during his lifetime.
