BEIRUT: Caretaker Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour discussed with the French ambassador Thursday preparations for an international donors’ conference set for March 5.

No statements were made following the meeting with French ambassador Patrice Paoli at the Foreign Ministry.

France will host next month the donors’ conference for Lebanon – known as the International Support Group for Lebanon – aimed at helping the country cope with the influx of Syrian refugees.

The International Support Group (ISG) for Lebanon was inaugurated in New York in September on the sidelines of the 68th session of the UN General Assembly. The ISG was formed with the intention of coordinating strong international support to Lebanon in response to the unprecedented challenges posed the Syrian crisis.

A total of 915,000 Syrian refugees are registered in Lebanon with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, according to a Feb. 7 report from the UNHCR.
