The ambiguities surrounding Lebanon's changing policy toward Syrian refugees are being tackled at the negotiating table, the UNHCR said Sunday, after the foreign minister called for making the registration of refugees the prerogative of the government.Hala al-Helou, an aide to Social Affairs Minister Rashid Derbas, said if the issue of re-organizing registration was being discussed it was in line with the government's bid to overhaul refugee management altogether.In June, the Interior Ministry decreed that Syrian refugees who travel back to their country would have their refugee status revoked.Early on in the crisis, Helou said, registration was carried out jointly between the government and the U.N. under common criteria, with the government focused in urban areas.
