Lebanon did not refuse the assistance offered by some countries after the explosion in Beirut.
This statement was made on Friday by the Lebanese government.
вЂњSome parties are trying to harm Lebanon by spreading rumors that we are refusing aid from a number of countries,вЂќ Al Mayadeen TV quoted the government as saying. As it notes, Lebanon is ready to accept вЂњany assistance from friendly StatesвЂќ.
Earlier, according to the Al Hadath TV channel, the Hezbollah Shia Party claimed that Lebanon had refused assistance from France.
