“As I laud the support and backup provided by this organization and friendly countries to address the tremendous fallout of the Beirut Port explosion, and recover from the economic and financial crisis, I call on the world to help us secure the safe return of the Syrian displaced to their homes because Lebanon which succumbs to the burden of unprecedented crises that weigh heavily upon it, will not be able to keep hosting the highest number of refugees per capita in the world.”

STORYLINE:

Lebanese President Michel Aoun said his country was facing “unprecedented crises that weigh heavily upon it” and would “not be able to keep hosting the highest number of refugees per capita in the world.”

In his pre-recorded address to the High-level meeting to commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the United Nation today (21 Sep), Aoun lauded the support his country received by the international community to address the “tremendous fallout of the Beirut Port explosion, and recover from the economic and financial crisis” and called on “the world to help [Lebanon] secure the safe return of the Syrian displaced to their homes because Lebanon which succumbs to the burden of unprecedented crises that weigh heavily upon it, will not be able to keep hosting the highest number of refugees per capita in the world.”

The Lebanese President reiterated his country’s attachment to the United Nations' supreme principles and Charter, as a founding member of the Organization. Aoun said the Declaration adopted today highlighted the aspirations and achievements of the United Nations, as well as some disappointments regarding unfulfilled dreams and hopes, which require action to introduce the necessary reforms to the modus operandi of the Organization.
