Macron promises to host an aid conference to help Lebanon deal with Syrian refugees

hariri-macron parisFrance’s Emmanuel Macron promised Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Friday (September 1) that they would remain the primary recipient of French aid to help with Syrian refugees.

For six years, as many as 1.5 million Syrians have poured into Lebanon, equal to around a quarter of its population.

Some political leaders say Lebanon has lost patience with the social and financial burden of the refugee crisis.

Macron said France was willing to host an investors’ conference in the first trimester of 2018 to raise public and private funding that would help countries develop projects for Syrian refugees.

“Our desire is that we can find a political resolution, a political transition that will allow things to get back to normal, a complete and lasting eradication of all forms of terrorism in the country, and its reconstruction with the necessary political stability,” Macron added.

Earlier this week, Macron said France is engaged in a contact group on Syria, who will meet at the United Nations in New York in September.

    I specifically chose a topic where there are 0 comments to raise some observations:
    1. Is YaLibnan Staff on vacation? You need to warn us ahead of time 😉
    2. What a desolate place this is… Thanks to the paid zionist trolls many good people left.
    3. YaLibnan MUST be about topics concerning LEBANON. I have no idea why topics like hurricane Irma is here while we ignore the temperature in Lebanon proper. So let’s add Lebanese weather.
    4. Why would I give a crap about an Iranian woman if she hates the scarf… Let’s poll Lebanese women if they hate theirs.
    5. Let’s make this site more engaging. Polls etc.

      I think exactly that, too late, they had no ethics (somehow articles were imposed), it lost it’s soul and original purpose, it became a drag.
