US dismisses Khamenei comments on Hariri tribunal

The US views as insignificant and does not take seriously comments by the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader this week, who scoffed an international tribunal investigating the assassination of Lebanon’s former prime minister Rafik Hariri.

At a press briefing in Washington on Monday, Assistant Secretary Philip Crowley said, the regime’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, “does not have the authority over the tribunal. It was convened by the United Nations. We are supporters of it, but as our statement at the opening made clear, it is independent, and we look forward to whatever judgments the tribunal issues.”
