Local agency “Al-Markazia” reported that the initial document of the parliamentary recommendations, which has been handed to the government, highlights 9 points.

It emphasizes that Lebanon is not a “haven country” and asks the government to communicate with all relevant parties regarding displacement, including the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Syrian government. (Lebanon is not a signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention NDRL)

The document also calls for addressing the displacement crisis within a maximum period of one year, and requests redirecting aid to displaced persons in Syria.

Of note, preparations are ongoing for the parliamentary session scheduled for May 15, as part of a concerted effort to reach a unified stance among parliamentary blocs regarding the issue of Syrian migrants. MPs are aiming to achieve a unanimous vote on Wednesday.
