MERABI REJECTS NATURALIZATION, PUSHES FOR SAFE RETURN OF SYRIANS

Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Beshara Boutros Rahi, welcomed on Tuesday State Minister for the Affairs of the Displaced, Moein Merabi, who stated after the meeting that Lebanon rejects "naturalization" and insists on the safe return of Syrian refugees to their country.

"As everyone knows, Lebanon is not a country for a final asylum and we do not accept naturalization," Merabi said, emphasizing on the "return of [Syrian] refugees to their homeland, when circumstances permit, and under the direct sponsorship of the United Nations."

The minister added that discussions also focused on the impact of the Syrian workers on the Lebanese market.
