Lebanon urges US to facilitate refugees' return


(MENAFN) The crisis of Syrian refugees in Lebanon was the focal point of discussion between Lebanese President Michel Aoun and a delegation of U.S. Catholic Bishops at the Baabda Palace on Tuesday.

Aoun called upon the delegation to back Lebanon's stance and urge the U.S.
administration to facilitate the return of refugees. He pointed to obstacles created by some "foreign parties hampering Lebanon's efforts to return the displaced."

On the U.S. decision to move its Israel embassy, Aoun reflected Lebanon's position rejecting the transfer of the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

"The Holy city includes religious landmarks for Christians, Muslims and Jews and can not be for a religious group without the other," said Aoun.
