Lebanon’s foreign ministry appreciates the European commission’s ongoing commitment to help the poorest

Following Commissioner Janez Lenarcic’s meeting with Minister Bou Habib in Brussels yesterday, the European Union decided to donate an extra 15 million euros to assist the most vulnerable Lebanese and Syrian refugees.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants, representing the EU, expressed its approval of this decision on Saturday.

“Continued commitment to alleviate the suffering of the most underprivileged social segments” was acknowledged by the Ministry in a statement it released.

It also expressed hope for “the continuation of dialogue and cooperation to reach sustainable solutions aimed at the safe and rapid return of displaced Syrians to their homes.”
