Bassil said that he has focused during the meeting on the Israeli daily violations against Lebanon’s sovereignty.

The minister thanked Denmark for the help whether at the south within the UNIFIL, the Trust Fund or through local projects.

Discussions highlighted the risk of Syrian refugees into Lebanon, “we renewed our call to find a political solution in Syria,” Bassil asserted.

“A lasting political solution to the crisis is to return the displaced bac

k to their home, confirming that their naturalization is not an option,” he concluded.
