Two days after the summit, the Russians declared that an accord was reached to return the Syrian refugees to Syria, including some who are already in Europe.Instead, the Russian foreign minister and the chief of staff of the Russian army have, after the announcement, begun consultations with the French, the Germans and the Israelis on the subject.They told the Europeans that the important conditions for the return of the refugees, including those in Europe of course, were lifting the sanctions on Syria and the rehabilitation of the Syrian economy. Late last month, a high-level Russian delegation, composed of a special representative of Putin and a senior member of the Russian Defense Ministry, arrived in Lebanon to discuss the return of Syrian refugees. Hopes were raised when Hezbollah announced late in July that 1,200 refugees were returned in one month (at this rate, it would take about 70 years to return the more than 1 million refugees in Lebanon).Many of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon who can safely return are actually returning.
