Speaker Dismisses Court Ruling on Hezbollah as "Politically-Tainted"

Speaking to reporters in the Azeri capital city of Baku on Saturday, Larijani said that the court ruling was a scenario initiated by the US after the Lebanese leaders, including Hezbollah Secretary-General Seyed Hassan Nasrallah, defused Washington's plot and efforts to hinder formation of the new government in Lebanon.

"Accordingly, the dishonored court indicted Hezbollah, but nobody takes its seriously because the court is so political that it is clear to everyone that its accusations are not true at all," Larijani stated.

He further underlined ineffectiveness of such pressures, saying, "The Lebanese nation is aware of the issue, and American tactics and bribery in the region cannot solve the US problems."

The remarks by the Iranian speaker came after the Special Tribunal for Lebanon implicated two Hezbollah members in the murder of Rafik Hariri.

"We should set the country's peace above all else as the indictments are not judgments," said Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati after the release of the names.

"The sensitivity of the circumstances calls on us to act reasonably to prevent those seeking to create strife from achieving their goals."

Three officials from the tribunal, based in the Netherlands, delivered the indictments to Said Mirza, Lebanon's prosecutor-general, who is supposed to arrest the suspects.
