Fight terrorism to decrease number of refugees: BerriThe solution to the refugee crisis in the region will be political and combating terrorism would decrease the number of refugees forced to flee their homes, Speaker Nabih Berri said Sunday. "The war against terrorism would lessen the number of refugees, the war on terrorism preserves the Middle East ... the war on terrorism brings safety to minorities," Berri said. Lebanon has been burdened with an influx of 1.2 million registered Syrian refugees who fled their war-torn country after the war broke out in 2011 .The International Organization for Migration says more than 590,000 refugees and migrants have reached Europe's shores since January, while more than 3,000 have died or gone missing.
