Lebanon does not have sufficient financial means to cope with the consequences of the explosion in Beirut, said Lebanese Minister of Economy and Trade Raoul Nehme, APA reports citing Sky News.

"Lebanon does not have financial means to overcome the consequences of the explosion. We are asking the international community for aid. The damage caused by the explosion is assessed as billions of dollars. We will need time to estimate the total damage," he stated.

He also added that "the only solution for Lebanon is the cooperation with the International Monetary Fund."
