The UN on Monday voiced "total" solidarity with Lebanon, saying it will continue to support the country "in every possible way" following massive explosions that struck the Beirut port last week.

"The blast has come at an already difficult time for Lebanon, with the country already facing economic hardship and impacts of the coronavirus virus," UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in a briefing, offering his condolences to the families of more than 150 victims.

Guterres called for "robust international support" for all people in need in Lebanon.

The secretary stressed that the UN has undertaken a "swift and wide-ranging response".

"The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs helped to organize the deployment of experts from the International Search and Rescue Advisory Group and the United Nations Disaster Assessment and Coordination system to help first responders in Beirut.
