Sa’ad Al-Hariri says he is opposed to sanctions being imposed on Syria for the murder of his father Rafiq Al-Hariri.
It will add to the growing crucendo of voices against the threat of sanctions: yesterday Russia and the Arab League spoke out in the strongest terms against sanctions.
And now, possibly the most morally powerful voice has condemned the US-UK-France plan to threaten Syria.
“I am not in favour of sanctions against Syria,” Saad Hariri said, “We are friends of the people of Syria. Lebanon and Syria have had a very long historic friendship and we’d like to keep it this way.”
He said he was happy with the way the investigation was going.
