The source suggested that these three Arab countries, in particular, have the ability to exert influence on the international community concerning this issue.The president demanded that action be taken to put an end to competition in the Lebanese labor market – presumably in a reference to refugees – and to protect the country's productive sectors.But it remained unclear how the countries would be able to help with the areas that have been called "safe zones" inside of Syria, as they are under the control of Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime. Lebanon, on the other hand, is sharply divided over whether or not to communicate with the Syrian government to coordinate the return of refugees.Ibrahim defended the return of some 500 Syrians who left Lebanon's Shebaa to Syria's Beit Jin on April 18, describing it as completely "voluntary and safe".
