Aoun Voices Concern over International Community's Stance on Refugee Return

President Michel Aoun on Friday reiterated his stance regarding the Syrian refugees crisis, deeming it as the hardest challenge that Lebanon is facing due to regional unrest.

"We are worried that the international community is still insisting on linking the refugees' return to the political solution in Syria," Aoun said during the 22nd Mediterranean Lions Conference in Beirut.

"This means deferring the Syrians' return to their homeland indefinitely despite knowing that Lebanon is no longer able to endure this burden."
