MOSCOW, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia resolutely condemns today’s act of terror in central Beirut that killed Lebanese former Minister Mohammad Shatah, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
“We express sincere condolences to the relatives of Mohammad Shatah and other blast victims and wish the soonest recovery to those injured,” Lukashevich said. “Moscow resolutely condemns this inhumanly crime. Its goal is obvious - to further fan political and inter-religious tensions in the country, to push Lebanon to a crisis with unpredictable consequences. We confirm our solidarity with the government and the people of Lebanon in their efforts to counteract all manifestations of terrorism.”
“We call on Lebanese political forces not to yield to this bloody provocation, to show restraint and consolidation in the name of the country’s highest interests, preserving its stability and security,” the Russian diplomat stressed. “Once again, we reiterate Russia’s principled position in support of solving Lebanon’s problems by means of a national dialogue with due account of interests of all population strata and groups.
