Students of the Political Tourism Program met on Saturday evening with Foreign Minister Gibran Bassil, who stressed the importance of this experience which teaches students about the methods of managing public affairs.
Bassil told his visitors that his concern is to encourage young Lebanese expatriates to become involved in political work in Lebanon.
Bassil explained that the issue of displaced Syrians is a heavy burden on Lebanon, highlighting the need to ensure their safe return to Syria.
He recalled that he had urged the international community, since the beginning of the crisis, to provide aid to the displaced on their territory, not to pay them money in Lebanon, in order not to encourage them to stay in our country.
