Salam from Berlin: Lebanon in urgent need for help to face displaced Syrians’ crisis

OCTOBER 28, 2014 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Prime Minister Tammam Salam confirmed at the Syrian refugees conference in Berlin that the responsibility is huge and the issue of the displaced is not a transient event.

“Yesterday we managed to address the situation and put an end to the attempts to undermine the state and challenge its authority. We will continue in this direction for the extension of the State authority and to ensure national unity. We have great challenges ahead and major files including the Syrian refugees’ dossier,” Salam said to his audience.

“It is imperative to thank Germany for this meeting. We continue to assume our responsibilities in welcoming the refugees and providing them with everything they need. We were able to control the situation and adopt practical measures in dealing with displacement. (…) However we need the support of all Lebanon’s friends to face this crisis amid the current circumstances,” he added.
