The 136th Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) continued its meetings in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on Tuesday with Lebanon being represented by MPs Yassine Jaber and Bassem Al-Shab.
Delivering Lebanon's word, MP Jaber ratcheted up the pressure for a unified international effort fighting terrorism and thrashing out the humanitarian calamities caused by terrorist activities worldwide.
"I'm here today to represent my motherland, Lebanon, which is located in the heart of a region simmering with terrorism and armed clashes that have led to many humanitarian tragedies in neighboring countries, including Lebanon itself," Jaber said.
He purveyed to his audience the hard-hitting Lebanese reality, which began its sufferings since the Palestinian refugee crisis, reaching the recent Syrian refugee crisis.
"This is a huge burden that Lebanon lives with. The country has been exerting relentless efforts to handle the refugee crisis with utmost humanitarianism, especially concerning the education of refugee children," Jaber added.
"Pending a solution, Lebanon remains in great need of financial support to handle refugee issues. We implore Parliaments partaking in this conference to urge their respective countries to offer any support possible to Lebanon," the lawmaker added.
