French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday called for accelerating aid delivery to Lebanon in the wake of Tuesday’s explosion at the Beirut port.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
“Aid should go directly to the people on the ground,” Macron said at the opening of a virtual emergency donors’ conference for Lebanon.
"We must act quickly and efficiently so that the aid goes directly to where it is needed," he said. "Lebanon's future is at stake... we must establish an International response under the UN coordination.”
The French leader went on to call on the Lebanese authorities to respond to the people's demands but also warned that "violence and chaos must not prevail."
