Prime Minister Tammam Salam Sunday dismissed reports about a split within his government, saying political parties represented in it were still upholding it despite heated debates and divergent viewpoints that sometimes emerge during Cabinet sessions.On the refugee crisis and a statement by Health Minister Wael Abu Faour in which he said the international community has failed to help Lebanon cope with this crisis and voiced fears about the collapse of the health system, he said: "It is clear that amid the Syrian refugee flow, the needs to meet the requirements of the refugees are increasing and Lebanon's resources are insufficient".He added that the government was in contact with international organizations to secure promised aid to help Lebanon cope with the burdens of more than 1 million Syrian refugees on its territories. Salam said an amount of $57 million, out of the $140 million allotted by the international community for Lebanon, would be sent to the government soon.
