BEIRUT: There will be no repercussions on the Lebanese government from Bulgaria’s accusations that Hezbollah was involved in an attack on a tourist bus in Burgas, Interior Minister Marwan Charbel said in remarks published Thursday.
“Bulgarian accusations against Hezbollah will have no repercussions on the government and the domestic scene,” Charbel told the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Seyassah.
“Let’s wait until more details are uncovered in this case,” he urged.
His comments came a day after the opposition March 14 coalition warned of the repercussions of Sofia’s allegation that Hezbollah is responsible for the 2012 bomb attack on a tourist bus in Burgas which killed five Israeli tourists.
But Charbel said that global keenness on stability in Lebanon was “comforting.”
In separate remarks to the local daily Al-Joumhouria, Charbel denied his ministry has received notice of Bulgaria’s accusation.
