Pompeo Says Syrian Refugees in Lebanon Must Return Home

U.S. State Secretary Mike Pompeo reportedly said that Lebanon is subject to dangers due to the tremendous number of Syrian refugees it is hosting, stressing the need to lay the groundwork for their return. “In Lebanon, there are 1.5 million Syrian refugees with all the burden they have on the country in terms of cost and the dangers posed by their presence on Lebanon and its democracy," Pompeo said in a testimony before the Congress.
