The double bombing, which was perpetrated outside the Iranian embassy in the south of Beirut on Tuesday, killed more than twenty people including an Iranian diplomat and wounded many more. Switzerland condemns this act of terrorism in the strongest terms. The FDFA expects the perpetrators to be brought to justice.
Switzerland expresses its deep sympathy to the families and friends of the victims and to the Lebanese and Iranian authorities. It takes this opportunity to reiterate its support for the efforts of the Lebanese government to maintain the stability of the country in this especially difficult context.
