BEIRUT: France will extend aid to the Syrian refugees in Lebanon, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Tuesday, according to a statement from Prime Minister Najib Mikati’s office.

Following a meeting with Mikati, Fabius said his country is aware of the efforts Lebanon is exerting to help Syrian refugees and will support the country in its mission.

Media reports have said Mikati, who is on an official three-day visit to France, will address the issue of Syrian refugees in Lebanon and ask for France’s help in providing aid to the refugees, especially after their number has climbed to 118,633, according to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees.

According to the statement, Fabius reiterated to Mikati France’s support for stability in Lebanon and stressed the need to avoid “vacuum” in the country.”

Fabius said his country encourages national dialogue in the country and supports the disassociation policy Lebanon has adopted from the Syrian crisis.

Mikati, who arrived in Paris Sunday, met with several French officials and is also set to meet with French President Francois Hollande Wednesday at the Elysee Palace.
