KARAM: WE HAVE TO PUSH FOR RETURN OF DISPLACED TO THEIR HOMELAND

Lebanese Forces bloc MP, Fadi Karam, on Tuesday described the next cabinet's meeting over the electricity dossier as "positive".

"We call it an important task, not a battle by the ministers. It actually is a fundamental task and a priority of the Lebanese people, thus, it must be fully transparent and unquestionable," the lawmaker said about the simmering electricity dossier in an interview with Al-Sharq radio station.

"I think that Lebanon has so far been able to protect itself from terrorism and that the Lebanese army and security forces are fully aware of the need to keep protecting Lebanon from terrorism," he added.

"There is no doubt that the massive displacement is a greater crisis than Lebanon's ability to resolve. It is our turn to accelerate our political decision and put this issue in the hands of the world and the press to push for the return of Syrian refugees their homeland," the lawmaker stressed.

As for Sheikh Naim Kassem's request of the Lebanese government to coordinate with the Syrian regime over the return of the displaced, Karam deemed it a call to help the exhausted Syrian regime and not to find a solution to the Syrian conflict.

"We hope for Lebanon and Hezbollah to exit the game of confronting regional states and not to interfere in those battles," he said, referring to Hezbollah's campaign against Israel at this particular stage.

He concluded by pointing out that alliances for parliamentary elections have begun, and that negotiations were ongoing among all political parties.
