Communiqué of the French Permanent Mission to the United Nations, 17 December 2010
France has paid its contribution to the budget of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon for 2011. This amounts to €1.5 million, thus bringing the total financial support provided by France to the STL since its creation to €4.5 million.
This contribution reflects France’s resolute support for the work of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. France urges all parties to respect the STL’s mandate, established by Security Council resolution 1757 (2007). This Tribunal must, in the interests of Lebanon as well as the entire region, be allowed to continue working completely independently and in an atmosphere of calm. The international community must continue to lend the Tribunal its political and financial support.
