In respond to the humanitarian help in Lebanon Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Aziz Pahad said on Monday, that South Africa is very proud of groups like the Gift of the Givers’ who extended help to Lebanon in last week.
He reiterated that they can now only call on the South African community as well as the International community to raise greater effort as the entire village’s infrastructure in Lebanon was destroyed.
The minister also said that South Africa can only give the basis of a solution to solve problems between Israel and Lebanon, and to emphasise UN resolutions.
He also commented on the situation in Sri Lanka by saying that he acknowledges that the situation is deteriorating in Colombo but that it is up to the cricket players if they wish to come home. Recent reports show that the bomb has caused the area to be very chaotic.
