Lebanese president calls on German Chancellor for aid

(MENAFN) Lebanese President Michel Aoun has called on German Chancellor Angela Merkel to help his country gradually repatriate its large Syrian refugee population.

This came during a Friday meeting with Merkel at the presidential palace in Beirut.

Aoun cited his country's long experience with the unresolved dispute over Cyprus and the seven-decade-long Palestine-Israel conflict.

"Lebanon has borne a lot as a result of the Syrian crisis," he said, pointing out that his country currently hosts 1.8 million refugees from all over the region.
