President Michel Aoun called Tuesday for a quick solution to the Syrian refugee crisis in Lebanon, saying that the country can no longer take the burden."And it includes different aspects that Lebanon can no longer handle and this imposes the need to work to find a quick solution for the refugees' sufferings and its implications on Lebanon," he added.As he did Monday when meeting French President Emmanuel Macron, Aoun touched on Israeli violations of Lebanon's sovereignty with Philippe. Philippe assured Aoun that France would stand by Lebanon and was committed to the political stability and security in the country. He said France would also work to implement and translate what was agreed upon during Aoun's meeting with Macron. Aoun began his day with a sit-down meeting with French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire, before meeting with France's Foreign Minister Jean Yves Le Drian.Turning to the Syrian refugee crisis, Aoun said again that the time was right for refugees to return.
