Commenting on this morning’s car bomb explosion in southern Beirut, Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
I condemn today’s explosion in southern Beirut. My thoughts are with those injured in the attack and their families.
I call on all Lebanese parties to work together to resist any efforts by extremists and terrorists to undermine Lebanon’s hard-won peace.
The UK remains fully committed to supporting stability in Lebanon and to helping the Lebanese authorities respond to the impact of the Syrian conflict. This commitment has been demonstrated by visits to Lebanon by the International Development Secretary and the Chief of the Defence Staff.
