German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in Beirut on Friday afternoon to hold talks with the Lebanese government on economic issues and the Syrian refugee crisis.

She met with representatives of international organisations such as Unicef, UNCHR and the World Food Programme.

During a press conference, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said that there’s no solution for the Syrian refugees other than their return to their country of origin in safe conditions.

Merkel agreed that “solutions” in Syria are needed in order to be able to consider the return of the displaced people.

More than one million Syrians are registered in Lebanon as refugees, according to United Nations.

There are around 5 millions refugees, near 30% of Syrian population. Flushing ’em at once, then you create just a new humanitarian problem and who will pay? Not USA, not Syria, not Russia, not Iran, it will be Germany! “so that for years to come they… Read more »
