Prime Minister Tammam Salam Monday called for the establishment of a joint Arab committee to look at ways to relocate Syrian refugees from Lebanon in safe zones within their country, at the Arab League summit in Mauritania."Lebanon proposes that an Arab committee is made in order to establish safer areas for refugees inside Syrian territory, and to convince the international community of this," the prime minister said in a speech in the opening day of the summit. He also stressed once again that Lebanon was not a permanent home for the refugees but could only offer temporary accommodation. There are 1.1 million Syrian refugees registered with the UNHCR in Lebanon, but many place the real figure at closer to 2 million.On the sidelines of the summit, Salam met with Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah and Jordanian Prime Minister Hani Mulki.
