Grandi explained that “Lebanon is going through one of its most difficult period, while it continues to host one of the largest refugee populations per capita in the world, according to the United Nations website.

He added that both the Lebanese and refugees are suffering immensely due to the multiple crises, pushing more of them into the abyss of poverty every day.

Grandi called on the international community to continue its crucial support for the most vulnerable Lebanese and refugees in Lebanon, at a time the country is facing the worst economic crisis in modern history.
