(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) US has strongly condemned the abhorrent terrorist attack and assassination of former Lebanese Cabinet Minister Mohamad Chatah in Beirut on Friday.

This is a terrible loss for Lebanon, the Lebanese people and for the United States, said US Secretary of State John Kerry in a statement. Kerry added that the Obama Administration supports Lebanon as its leaders work to bring those responsible for this heinous and cowardly attack to justice under the rule of law. Such actions cannot be allowed to take place with impunity, he noted.

He said : "This is why we fully support the work of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and its efforts to find and hold accountable those responsible for these reprehensible and destabilizing acts". These acts only reinforce the strength and resolve of our commitment to support legitimate, unifying security forces in Lebanon, such as the Lebanese Armed Forces.

It also shows the importance of all parties adhering to the Taif and Baabda agreements and UN Security Council Resolutions 1559 and 1701, and fulfilling their commitments to all of those principles, so that Lebanon maintains its sovereignty and stability. "We stand with the Lebanese people at this time and will continue to do so" he stressed.
