Kuwait stands alongside Lebanon a year after port blast, PM says

Kuwait’s Prime Minister His Highness Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said on Wednesday his country stands alongside Lebanon a year after a devastating port blast left much of its capital city in ruin.
“We meet today a year after the Beirut port blast to demonstrate our support for the Lebanese people who have suffered a lot,” the Kuwaiti prime minister said amid the virtually held third Paris international conference, coinciding with the anniversary of the “painful” incident.
On the talks, he said it was a “show of solidarity” to prove the international community’s support for Lebanon, citing a previous sum of USD 30 million Kuwait is donating to push reconstruction efforts in the country.
A powerful port blast rocked the Lebanese capital Beirut a year ago, causing large-scale destruction in a country already in the throes of its worst economic crisis in decades
