Selim Aoun: Our Bloc will accord refugees dossier priority in new government
Strong Lebanon” Parliamentary Bloc Member, MP Selim Aoun, stated Saturday that his Bloc would give priority to the Syrian refugees file in the upcoming cabinet.
“We have reached a red line in the Syrian refugees dossier and Lebanon cannot wait any longer for this issue to be resolved,” said Aoun in an interview to “Radio Free Lebanon” this morning, calling on the international community “to put an end to this crime against Lebanon.”
He stressed that through Caretaker Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil’s recent decision in this respect, Bassil has sent a message to the international community through the Higher Refugees Commission to find a quick solution to this problem, especially that “the UNHCR is urging the displaced not to return home, triggering their fears through organized tours to this effect.”
Aoun demanded those who are criticizing the decision of Bassil to provide an alternative solution to this dossier.
Over possible repercussions of said this decision on the relationship with the international community, Aoun stressed, “Good relations with other countries are important, but the interest of Lebanon remains the most important.
