Mikati pressing to deport Syrians who entered Lebanon post 2015


Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati is pressing the relevant international parties to return the unregistered Syrians in Lebanon to their country, a media report said.

“In the meetings that Mikati held over the past days, it was revealed that the European Union has become responsive to the Lebanese proposal,” the Nidaa al-Watan newspaper reported on Tuesday.

“Mikati has told his associates that he is pressing the U.N. Refugee Agency to consider all the migrants who entered Lebanon after 2015 as being illegal residents, which necessitates their return either to the regime’s areas in Syria, to the opposition’s areas or to any other nation,” the daily added.

It also quoted Mikati as saying that “practical steps are currently being taken in the file of the displaced.”
