Geagea Urges Asking Russia to Create Border Zones for Refugees

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on Monday announced that Lebanon's refugee crisis cannot be resolved by “proposing the same ideas.”

“The solution lies in exerting a Lebanese diplomatic effort with Russia, seeing as it is the only force present in Syria and it has ties with Iran and the Syrian regime, in order to create safe zones on the Syrian side of the border with Lebanon,” Geagea said after a meeting for the Strong Republic bloc.

He added: “The international community would continue to offer aid, the same as it is doing now in Lebanon, and through that we would secure a dignified life for the refugees, but in Syrian rather than in Lebanese territory.”
