MOSCOW, March 26. /TASS/. The economic situation in Lebanon, which provides shelter for 1.5 million Syrian refugees, may push them toward migration to Europe, Lebanese President Michel Aoun said on Tuesday at a meeting with State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin.
"We have 500,000 Palestinian refugees and about 1.5 million Syrians. It is a high figure for our country," Aoun stressed. "Europe is directly interested in solving the situation, as Syrian refugees staying in Lebanon are not satisfied with the economic situation in the country and new and new migrant waves to Europe will start soon."
