“At some point, we made a mistake,” AFP quoted Hariri as telling the Saudi-owned daily Asharq al-Awsat on Monday.

“At one stage, we accused Syria of assassinating the martyred premier…that was a political accusation, and that political accusation is over,” he told the London-based paper.

“There is a (UN) court that is doing its job, and we for our part must reassess what happened,” he went on to say.

Former Lebanese Premier Rafiq Hariri was killed, along with more than 20 others, in a massive bombing in the Lebanese capital on February 14, 2005.

Lebanon’s Western-backed parties blamed the assassination on Syria, a charge Damascus vehemently rejected.
