Russia not interfering in Lebanon's domestic policy - Dmitry Medvedev
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has reiterated that Russia will not interfere in Lebanon's internal affairs, his aide said on Tuesday.
"Medvedev has emphasized that all thorny issues on the Lebanese national agenda should be solved without any interference from outside," Sergei Prikhodko told RIA Novosti.
The president has pledged support for a UN-backed tribunal investigating the killing of Rafik Hariri, the father of Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri, Prikhodko said.
Medvedev and Hariri pledged to build up Russia-Lebanon relations during talks in the Russian president's Gorki residence outside Moscow, he said.
The two leaders also discussed Middle East peace efforts, Prikhodko said.
