State Minister for the Affairs of the Displaced, Moein Mehrabi, and Deputy UN Special Coordinator, UNDP Resident Representative, Philippe Lazzarini, toured on Tuesday a number of Southern Lebanese villages that are hosting Syrian refugees.
Minister Meraabi said that the Lebanese government was dealing with the displacement of Syrians through the "United Nations," noting that the Lebanese State has endorsed their return to their homeland, but this issue was disagreed upon by the international communities and asylum principles.
Mehrabi refused the illegal competition imposed by the Syrians refugees against the Lebanese workers in the Lebanese markets.
For his part, Lazzarani thanked the Lebanese community for its generous hosting of the Syrian Refugees and promised to exert great efforts to ensure more aid for Lebanon.
