Trump: Lebanon needs 'transparent' probe into Beirut explosion

Lebanon has to launch a transparent investigation into the blast that occurred in Beirut, United States President Donald Trump said on Sunday.

Talking at the international donor conference for Lebanon, organized by French President Emmanuel Macron, Trump called for a full and thorough probe into the accident and expressed the US government's willingness to help conduct the investigation.

The US president also urged the Lebanese government and people to uphold peace, but noted that Washington acknowledges "legitimate calls of peaceful protesters for transparency, reform, and accountability."
