Lebanon FM warns of 'strife' over Syria refugee crisis

Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil speaks during a press conference in Berlin, on May 6, 2014Lebanon’s Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil warned Friday the Syrian refugee crisis may lead to “strife” in the tiny Mediterranean country between Syrians and Lebanese, should it remain unsolved. To highlight the scale of the influx, Bassil compared it to transferring the entire population of Romania to Britain or France. Hosting more than 1.1 million Syrians fleeing their country’s three-year war, Lebanon is home to the highest number of Syrian refugees in the region, and also to the highest refugee population per capita in the world. Bassil spoke at a news conference focusing on the refugee crisis a day after the United Nations warned that Syrian refugees will comprise more than a third of Lebanon’s population by the end of 2014.
