The Lebanese government has expressed its deep gratitude and esteem for the generous initiative of King Mohammed VI in ordering the dispatch of urgent medical and humanitarian aid after the explosion that rocked the port of Beirut.
“I express, on behalf of the Lebanese government, our deep gratitude and our great esteem for the generous initiative of HM King Mohammed VI”, said the director of Arab Affairs at the Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and from the Expatriates, Ali Al-Mawla Safir.
“The Moroccan humanitarian initiative, considered one of the most important aid received by Lebanon, constitutes an expression of solidarity on the part of Morocco which has always shown a strong attachment to the values of solidarity with brotherly countries”, noted Safir.
And to add that urgent Moroccan humanitarian and medical aid in Lebanon is also a mark of the Kingdom of Morocco’s solidarity with the Lebanese people.
“This generous act of Morocco will certainly give an additional boost to the good fraternal relations existing between the two countries”, estimated the Lebanese diplomat, stressing that this gesture of solidarity will contribute to the strengthening of these relations.
Urgent Moroccan humanitarian and medical aid for Lebanon arrived Friday morning at Beirut International Airport.
