Lebanon – Violence in Tripoli (May 14, 2012)
France condemns the violence that left 4 people dead and more than 40 injured in Tripoli over the weekend. We express our condolences to the bereaved as well as our sympathy to the injured.
In the context of the Syrian crisis, France stands alongside the Lebanese authorities in their determination to ease internal tensions.
France calls on all Lebanese people to give precedence to the interests of Lebanon over all other considerations and to promote dialogue, national unity and civil peace in order to prevent a crisis that is not of their making from spilling over into the country.
