Lebanese president urges IRC to support safe return of displaced Syrians to homeland
BEIRUT: Lebanese President Michel Aoun urged on Wednesday the International Red Cross (IRC) to help Lebanon by securing the return of displaced Syrians to safe areas in their homeland, a statement by Lebanon’s Presidency reported.
Aoun’s remarks came during his meeting with the newly appointed representative of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Lebanon Simone Ashelman.
Aoun told Ashelman about the various crises prevailing in Lebanon, which are exacerbated by the presence of a big number of displaced Syrians in the country.
Aoun also thanked the IRC for its big support following the Beirut port explosions on August 4, 2020 and the recent fuel tank explosion in Akkar.
Meanwhile, Ashelman emphasized the mission’s readiness to cooperate with Lebanon by supporting the country in humanitarian and health fields. (Xinhua)
