In a show of solidarity and humanitarian concern, Uruguay is coordinating the resettlement of 120 Syrian refugees currently living in Lebanon.While admitting that its contribution is limited, the Uruguayan government hopes to send a message of "fraternity" to the Lebanese people, who are currently hosting more than 1 million Syrian refugees, said Javier Miranda, Uruguay's secretary of human rights. Uruguay, which has a population of some 3.3 million people, will be the first Latin American country to participate in a resettlement program for Syrian refugees.Miranda and other Uruguayan officials traveled to Lebanon last week to interview Syrian families for the resettlement program.
