Aoun: International Assistance Must Be Given to Refugees Inside Syria

President Michel Aoun on Friday renewed his call for ensuring the return of Syrian refugees back to safe areas in their homeland, adding that Lebanon is cooperating with the concerned international forces to reach that end.

"However, we are being continously confronted by the insistence of the international community on according priority to the political solution," Aoun told a delegation headed by the President of the Alliance for Peace and Freedom, Roberto Fiore.

Aoun stressed the need to grant refugees aids and assistance in their country, not in the host communities, in order to motivate them to go back.

Fiore, who was accompanied by a European Parliament delegation, expressed his concern over the ongoing refugee crisis, noting that it is time for all parties, notably European countries, to find a solution for it.
