BEIRUT: Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri met Sunday with British Ambassador to Lebanon Tom Fletcher in Paris where the latter renewed his country's support for the Special Tribunal for Lebanon scheduled to begin trials this week.

On his Twitter feed, Fletcher said he offered his condolences to Hariri over the recent assassination of former Minister Mohammad Shatah who was also the former PM’s senior aide.

Shatah was killed when his convoy passed by a parked explosive-rigged vehicle in Downtown Beirut. The attack killed five other people.

Fletcher also renewed Britain’s support for the U.N.-backed court which is set to begin trials in the 2005 assassination of Hariri’s father, Rafik.

The court has indicted five Hezbollah suspects with involvement in the killing of Hariri.

Hariri is also scheduled to meet with Russia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Sergei Lavrov this week ahead of the Russian official’s meetings in the French capital in preparation for the second round of Syria peace talks in Geneva.
