The United States welcomes the announcement by Prime Minister Mikati that he has ordered the transfer of Lebanon’s financial commitment to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The Special Tribunal’s work represents a chance for Lebanon to move beyond its long history of impunity for political violence. The Lebanese authorities’ support for, and cooperation with, the work of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon is a critical international commitment.
