New York , Dhu-AlHijjah 9, 1434, Oct 14, 2013, SPA -- Undersecretary General of the United Nations for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman categorically denied statements attributed to him the day before yesterday by a Lebanese newspaper. A statement that has just been issued by the spokesman of the Department of Political Affairs of the United Nations Jared Kotler, and a copy of which was obtained by the Saudi Press Agency, said, 'The Undersecretary General of the United Nations fully rejects the alleged statements attributed to him by the Lebanese newspaper issued on October 12.' The spokesman added, 'The statements attributed by the newspaper to the Undersecretary General of the United Nations were fabricated, were not made by him and neither reflect his point of view nor that of the international organization.' Undersecretary General of United Nations categorically denies statements attributed to him on the Kingdom.

The item doesn't name the paper, describe what was said, let alone give a link.

It takes a bit of work, but here's the link, to Al-Akhbar. You'll likely need Google Translate. Tensions over Syria, Iran, and Lebanon itself are the issues.
