BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – President of Lebanon Michel Aoun called for the “safe and sustainable return” of displaced Syrian people to their homeland, while speaking at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City on Wednesday.

“It should not be linked to any political solution that no one knows when it will be reached,” the president emphasised.

“Unfortunately, international, political approaches to the Middle East still lack justice and there are double standards in this regard. The Palestinian question is an example of that. The absence of justice has led to wars in the Middle East. It has led to a resistance that will only end, when injustice ends,” he continued.

Aoun also welcomed the Russian initiative to facilitate repatriation of Syrian refugees from Lebanon and neighbouring countries, saying that “the largest part of Syrian territory has become safe.”
