Lebanese National Struggle Front ministers will resign from the cabinet should the government refused to fund the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, Naharnet Website quoted a minister from the bloc as saying.
“Whether (Prime Minister Najib) Miqati resigned or not, the National Struggle Front ministers will resign from the cabinet if the funding of the STL wasn’t approved,” the minister, who is loyal to National Struggle Front leader MP Walid Jumblat, told the daily.
Lebanon is responsible for meeting 49 percent of the costs of the STL.
The minister said that the cabinet session scheduled for November 30 will clear the stances towards the STL.
Although Miqati has continuously voiced his commitment to paying Lebanon’s dues, March 8 leaders have openly opposed Lebanon paying its annual share.
