Aoun Refuses Linking Refugees Return to Political Solution in Syria


President Michel Aoun on Wednesday stressed that Lebanon refuses to wait for a political solution in Syria before the refugees start returning to their homeland.

“Lebanon refuses to wait for a political solution before the refugees return home,” said Aoun, stressing that “Lebanon’s similar experience with the Palestinian refugees is not encouraging” for leniency in that regard.

His remarks came in a meeting with a visiting delegation of the Syndicate of Editors.

On the government issue, the President said: “There are no differences within the government. The government will be a success.”

He thinks he has a say in when the Syrians return to their homeland lol. Maybe he should ask the regime why it's refusing to take them back.

The regime cares little about them and wants them to continue to burden Lebanon. The quisling president will do what Bashar and Kizballah continue to tell him to do or say.

sometimes We must acknowledge that we’re blessed by the fact that Lebanese presidents have no more power than a plant. If Mr Deserter Aoun had any, he’d be hurting the country even more.

Like him or not, but Aoun has always had return of refugees as his main priority. Im with him 100% on this one.
