It is with the heaviest of hearts that we receive the news regarding the extent of the disaster that took place yesterday in Beirut.
On behalf of UCLG, and on behalf of our global constituency of local and regional governments through our Vice President, Mr. Mohamed Saadie, and our Lebanon office, we would like to express our deepest condolences and support for all the victims in Beirut, their families, and to its Governor and the city at large during this difficult time. We express our solidarity and sympathy to our members, the local public workers, and the people of Beirut and Lebanon.
Please count on UCLG joining together for a better life for all members of our constituencies and for safer and more resilient cities worldwide.
Dr. Mohamed Boudra President of UCLG
