Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has sent a letter of condolence to his Lebanese counterpart, Hassan Diab, following a massive explosion that rocked Beirut on Tuesday killing more than 100 people.
“On behalf of the Hungarian people, I wish to express my deepest condolences to you and the Lebanese people,” PM Orbán wrote in his letter. “We express our sympathies to the families of the victims and wish those who were injured a full and speedy recovery.”
“Our thoughts and hearts are with you,” he added.
PM Orbán assured Diab that Hungary was prepared to provide aid and support to Lebanon.
According to reports, more than 100 people were killed and at least 4,000 injured in the explosion in Beirut’s port, a site of several warehouses for chemicals.
