Adwan explains the financial burden of Syria’s exodus to Lebanon

The Head of Administration and Justice Committee MP George Adwan, responded to the speech of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad on Saturday, in which Al-Assad considered that “one of the obstacles to developing the economy is the Syrian funds frozen in Lebanese banks.”

In this regard, Adwan tweeted: “In  numbers, Prime Minister Diab, during the virtual Brussels conference, said that the cost of the Syrian displacement is 46.5 billion dollars, according to the Ministry of Finance.”

“Deposits of non-residents amounted to 24 billion and 682 million in May, of which 7 billion belong to Syrians,” he added.

“He who drove Syrians to flee their nation must guarantee 46.5 billion dollars to Lebanon in order for it to rise and refund the Syrians’ 7 billion deposits.,” Adwan concluded.
