Brazil Reaffirms It Will Give US$ 1 Million to Rebuild Lebanon

Celso Amorim, Brazil's Minister of Foreign Relations confirmed during the International Conference for Lebanon (Paris III), that the Brazilian government was giving US$ 1 million to that country to finance reconstruction projects.

According to information provided by the Ministry of Foreign Relations, this is the second donation from Brazil to Lebanon. Last year, US$ 500,000 were donated during the Conference in Stockholm.

In his address at the Paris Conference, Amorim stated that the international community must also work for democracy in Lebanon:

"If, on the one hand, the strengthening of democratic Lebanese institutions depends – as it should – on the Lebanese, the political rebuilding of the country cannot take place without the support of the international community."

According to Argentine news agency TΓ©lam, French prime minister Jacques Chirac claimed that the international community has committed to donating US$ 7.6 billion to Lebanon.

Other donators, according to the agency, include the United States (US$ 770 million), Saudi Arabia (US$ 1 billion), the United Kingdom (US$ 48 million), France (US$ 650 million) and Germany (US$ 134 million), among others. The World Bank and the European Commission have committed to donate, respectively, US$ 1 billion and US$ 519 million.

The Ministry of Foreign Relations informed that Brazil has projects for cooperating with Lebanon in the fields of agriculture, health, education, professional training and the banking sector.
