I am pleased I had the opportunity to speak with you this morning Mr Zouky.
As mentioned by phone, the Department is aware of the incident that has occurred in Lebanon, and is seeing news unfold about the explosions in Beirut and the reports of fatalities and the many injuries.
I wanted to reach out and express sincere condolences with regard to this tragic event, and let you know that our thoughts are with you and the Lebanese community in Australia also.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if there are any concerns among the Lebanese-Australian community of Tasmania, or I can be of any assistance.
