Hajj Hassan, Kaag meet in Baalbeck over refugee situation

Industry Minister, Hussein Hajj Hassan, met on Sunday evening in Baalbeck with United Nations Special Coordinator in Lebanon, Sigrid Kaag.

Minister Hajj Hassan praised the role of the UN diplomat and called on the international community for additional aid to Lebanon in light of the impact of the major influx of Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

The presence of refugees in Lebanon causes a heavy security, economic, and social pressure that Lebanon's infrastructure could no longer tolerate.

In her delivered word, Kaag highlighted the need for additional international community support to Lebanon.
