The Lebanese Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Charbel Wahba, expressed, on behalf of the Lebanese government, « its deep thanks and gratitude to King Mohammed VI », who made a personal donation in the form of food aid to the Lebanese armed forces and the Lebanese people, on the occasion of the blessed month of Ramadan.
About eight Moroccan military aircraft have flown 90 tons of basic food products to Beirut. This royal gift « came as a balm on the wound of Lebanon, » said Monday Charbel Wahba, during a meeting with the Moroccan ambassador in Beirut, M’hammed Grine.
The Lebanese Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates also highlighted the constant support and solicitude of the Cherifian sovereign to Lebanon, recalling in this regard the important humanitarian aid that his country received from Morocco following the explosion in the port of Beirut last August.
Charbel Wahba praised the deployment of the Moroccan military field hospital in the centre of the Lebanese capital, which « provided medical services to the wounded and to all the inhabitants of the capital.
It should be noted that the last batch of food aid delivered, on the instructions of King Mohammed VI, Supreme Leader and Chief of General Staff of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR), to the Lebanese armed forces and people, arrived on Tuesday morning on board two Moroccan military aircraft, at Rafic Hariri International Airport in Beirut.
« I express my deep gratitude and thanks to His Majesty King Mohammed VI, may God preserve him, for this valuable and timely royal gift, » said Lebanese army chief General Joseph Aoun.
