Aoun to French MPs: We seek France’s help to repatriate the displaced

President Michel Aoun on Tuesday highlighted Lebanon's wish to receive the help of France and Europe to repatriate the displaced Syrians present currently on the Lebanese soil.

"We seek the help of France and Europe, especially that the incoming reports indicate that those who have returned are now living in reassuring circumstances," Aoun told a delegation of members of the French Parliament who visited him at Baabda palace, chaired by MP Guindal Royard.

"Lebanon is living security stability along its Bekaa borders with Syria after the Lebanese army defeated the terrorist organizations," he said, adding that the situation is equally calm in the south where the Lebanese army and the UNIFIL cooperate to preserve stability.

He also maintained that the Lebanese rejected any sort of extremist rhetoric regardless of its sources.

The President had separately met with former lawmaker Salim Salhab over the situation on the local and regional scenes.
