French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Beirut on Thursday to mobilize international aid for Lebanon after the explosions in the port area on Tuesday afternoon.
“Lebanon is not alone,” Macron wrote on Twitter, in both French and Arabic, as soon as it landed in the Lebanese capital, as confirmed by the Elisha Palace, quoted by the French press.
During his stay in Beirut, Macron is planning a meeting with his Lebanese counterpart Michel Aoun and Prime Minister Hasan Diab, as well as with other political actors and “representatives of civil movements,” according to the French presidency. BFMTV.
Macron’s intention is to underscore the need for the international community to send aid to Lebanon, which has been overwhelmed by the greatest “disaster” in the Arab nation since the 2006 war against Israel.
