Vientiane, 6 August 2020
I have learned of the unprecedented incident of the massive explosion in Beirut, the capital city of the Republic of Lebanon on 4 August 2020, which caused loss of lives and extensive damage to properties of Lebanese people.
On behalf of the Government of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and the entire Lao people as well as on my own behalf, I would like to convey my deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to Your Excellency, the Government and people of the Republic of Lebanon, particularly the victims and affected families.
I am confident that under the leadership of the Government of the Republic of Lebanon, the country will be able to overcome this difficulty and restore the living condition of the victims to normalcy soon.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
His Excellency Charbel Wehbe
Minister of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants
of the Republic of Labanon
