Lebanese Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati said that the return of the Syrians refugees to their lands can only be achieved with concerted Arab efforts and support from the international community, pointing out that the refugees crisis is greater than Lebanon's ability to bear.
In his speech at the 32nd regular session of the Arab League Council at the summit level in Jeddah, Mikati said that the Lebanese crisis has become more complicated with the vacancy of the presidency of the republic, referring also to the issue of the Syrians refugees, and that the protracted duration of the crisis, the faltering of its treatment, and the large increase in the number of the refugees, made the crisis greater than Lebanon's capacity, both in terms of its infrastructure and the and the social and political effects.
Mikati also touched on the current crises in the Arab world, (Palestine, Yemen and Sudan), focusing on the situation in Lebanon, which he said is experiencing multiple crises that have weighed heavily on the Lebanese people who suffer from lack of the basic moral and material necessities of life.
