Diab calls for more aid for international students

Hassan Diab, the caretaker Prime Minister, wrote to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants, demanding that it urge Lebanese diplomatic and consular offices to make every effort to allow students studying abroad to continue their education.

The letter reads as follows:

«Following up on the situation of Lebanese students abroad at the beginning of the new academic year, and in order to enable them to pursue their studies in light of the economic and financial conditions that the country is going through, you are requested to instruct the Lebanese diplomatic and consular missions abroad to make efforts with governmental and non-governmental associations, university administrations, and affluent Lebanese community members abroad, urging them to provide assistance to students abroad, as well as to seek to extend tuition fees payment deadlines and reduce them when possible.»—PM Press Office
