British Foreign Office affirms UK support for STL

19 December 2010 Foreign Secretary William Hague discussed the areas of concern, and the direction of foreign policy in the coming months.
In an interview with Adam Boulton on Sky News, the Foreign Secretary said:
The Foreign Secretary discussed concern in Lebanon as the Special Tribunal inquiry into the murder of former Prime Minister Hariri draws to a close.
"We are very concerned about Lebanon, that is one of our concerns over the coming weeks. We think it's very important that tribunal does its work. I've announced an increase in the British funding for that tribunal, as did the United States with their funding, to make clear that it must go ahead, that justice must proceed in the Lebanon for people to have any confidence in its future.
