Lebanese Prime Minister, Tammam Salaam, and German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, held a meeting at the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Turkey to discuss the Syrian refugee crisis.

Premier Salaam asserted to the German Chancellor that Lebanon will not naturalize the Syrian refugees:

“Our country cannot, as per the Lebanese constitution, approve of or accept any act of integrating, naturalizing or even resettling Syrians,” the Prime Minister stressed.

Salaam added that Lebanon supports a political solution in Syria that will allow the refugees to return safely.

“We firmly believe that a gradual return of Syrian refugees to safe territories in their homeland will undoubtedly influence the course of reconciliation,” the Prime Minister said.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

They should go home when the war is over and rebuild their country, not living on a welfare system of the accepting country…

Seems nobody said they asked for it… It appears that it was another Merkel’s good idea to question him about it… She’s the german Sarkozy : always doing the wrong thing…
