Aoun says not fair Syrian refugees stay in Lebanon, for them or us

President Michel Aoun warned Wednesday that “the effort of some countries to integrate the displaced Syrians present in Lebanon into the Lebanese society is a crime that Lebanon will not accept no matter what happens.”

Aoun voiced his remarks in a Baabda meeting with Canadian International Development Minister Harjit S. Sajjan.

“Lebanon is preparing a legal study that will be submitted to the U.N. about the issue of Syrian displacement, and we hope the friendly countries will support us, especially that the current situations in Syria allow for securing the return of the displaced to their country,” the president added.

“Lebanon can no longer bear the economic, social, health and security burdens resulting from the presence of around 1.5 million displaced Syrians on its soil,” Aoun went on to say.
