Saudi Arabia and Gulf countries express solidarity with Lebanon

Riyadh: Saudi Arabia said it was “following with great concern the repercussions of the explosion that occurred” in Lebanon after two massive explosions in Beirut’s port on Tuesday.
The two blasts killed dozens of people, with the death toll expected to rise, and injured thousands. The blast was felt across the city and damaged several buildings and roads.
The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs affirmed the Kingdom’s full support and solidarity with the “brotherly Lebanese people … and to protect Lebanon from all harm,” it said in a statement issued by Saudi Press Agency.
The Kingdom’s government also expressed its sincere condolences and sympathies to the families of the victims and those injured in the attack, wishing them a speedy recovery.

Lebanon’s Prime Minister Hassan Diab called on “friendly countries” to support the country already reeling from its worst economic crisis in decades as well as the coronavirus pandemic.
Several other Gulf countries issued similar statements.
The UAE’s Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed tweeted his condolences to the victims, saying: “We pray that God grants you patience and solace. God bless Lebanon and the Lebanese people.”
