The World Bank renewed its commitment to support Lebanon over the next three years as the amount of grants and loans earmarked to this country will reach over $1.5 billion, World Bank Director for the Middle East and North Africa Ferid Belhaj said.Belhaj said the international community is keen on helping Lebanon overcome challenges imposed by the Syrian crisis and other internal issues such as institutional weaknesses. "In spite of the various insufficiencies in Lebanon when it comes to the institutions' weaknesses, the country has been capable of moving forward with the huge number of Syrian refugees on its territories," he said.However, he added, Jordan has been capable of dealing with this crisis in a better way than Lebanon.
