Free Patriotic Movement chief and Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil has stressed that the FPM will not allow the “replacement” of Lebanese expats with “refugees.”
“They did not want this electoral law because they were benefiting from our marginalization and from the imbalance in order to boost their share at our expense,” Bassil told Lebanese expats at the Saint Charbel Church in Sydney.
“We will not allow them to replace you with displaced people or refugees,” he added.
In another speech in Melbourne, Bassil said: “We want to return expats to Lebanon and we will not build camps to replace the Lebanese with others.”
“We were not affected when they accused us of racism when we rejection naturalization (of refugees) and we also were not affected when they accused us of sectarianism when we restored the rights of expats,” Bassil added.
“No one can think of solving the problem of another people at the expense of our people,” the FPM chief underlined.
