MOSCOW, October 20 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Foreign Ministry stated on Saturday that the terrorist act in Lebanon, where eight people died in the car bomb explosion on Friday, demonstrated the urgent need to stop the destructive forces that attempt to plunge the Middle East in chaos.
"We express condolences to the families of the victims of the mean crime and wish the injured people to recover," the ministry said in its statement. "We strongly condemn the barbarian terrorist act. The perpetrators and the masterminders must be found and punished."
Moscow affirms its solidarity with Lebanon and firm support for its sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity, unity and stability based on the inter-Lebanon dialogue, with the interests of all the public, political and religious groups taken into consideration.
"What happened once again demonstrated the urgent need to stop the destructive forces attempting to plunge the Middle East in chaos, sow the seeds of hatred between neighbours in the region and representatives of various religious communities existing there side by side for centuries," the Russian Foreign Ministry noted.
On October 19, a car bomb was set off in the mostly Christian district of Ashrafiya in central Beirut. According to media reports, the explosion killed eight people and injured about 100, including several children. Among the killed people is chief of the interior security forces' intelligence service Brigadier General Wissam al-Hassan.
