EU Presidency statement on violence in Beirut

The EU Presidency deeply regrets that violence has erupted in Beirut today.

The Presidency calls upon the parties to cease immediately these riots, stop siege of the roads, open the airport and refrain from any further violent acts.

We urge opposition led by Hezbollah to stop all disruptive activities and start playing a constructive role in the country.

We believe that the parties will solve the crisis only by peaceful means and preserve sovereign, stable and independent Lebanon.
