Lebanon, Greece, Cyprus Focus on Cooperation

Beirut, Apr 10 ( Prensa Latina) Lebanon, Greece and Cyprus agreed Wednesday to step up cooperation on tourism, trade, education and the issue of Syrian refugees.

During a meeting in Beirut, political personalities from these three countries agreed to sign agreements on these sectors before May 7 with the approval of the respective Presidents.

The Phoenician Road to foster the tourism industry is among the connection initiatives between the three nations.

According to statements by the Lebanese Foreign Minister, Gebran Bassil, the three parties agreed the burden of the huge amount of refugees Lebanon is carrying is unbearable.

Lebanon cannot be a host of displaced persons, while Europe blocks the flow of them, he said.

Bassil and the President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, have reiterated Beirut is ready to facilitate the safe return of refugees to Syria without any condition.
