August 24, 2010 - Naharnet - Report: Paris Informed Riyadh that Tribunal Solution Lies in U.S.

Paris has reportedly informed Saudi Arabia that a solution to the indictment that would be issued by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon lies in the U.S.
As Safir daily said Tuesday that Saudi King Abdullah sent Intelligence Chief Prince Muqrin to Paris for talks with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Muqrin carried with him a royal message asking Paris to use its influence to find a solution to the indictment issue, As Safir said.

However, the newspaper reported that French authorities informed the envoy that the decision to find such a solution lied in Washington.

Saudi envoys have visited the U.S. for the same purpose, As Safir said.

It quoted a high-ranking Lebanese source as saying that Abdullah was making efforts to consolidate stability in Lebanon and stressed that civil strife was a red line.
