Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has given an interview to the BBC, blaming Israel for the absence of peace in the region and telling BBC Middle East Editor Jeremy Bowen that it is this lack of peace that is the real danger, and not any threat from Iran.

Hariri also addressed the much discussed tribunal investigating the murder of his father, former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, saying that when the assassination occurred in 2005, "everybody wanted to blame somebody." The comment was a response to the interviewer's raising of the blame Hariri had initially placed on Syria.
