Jumblat: Refugee Return Won't Happen as Long as Rejected by Regime
Progressive Socialist Party leader ex-MP Walid Jumblat noted Monday that “the return of Syrian refugees will not happen as long as the Syrian regime continues to reject it.”
“These people have fears,” Jumblat pointed out on the sidelines of a PSP seminar titled “Lebanon and the Syria Refugees: Rights, Concerns and Return Diplomacy”.
“Who will guarantee a safe return for them so that they don't get tortured and killed when they return?” he asked.
And voicing support for the Russian initiative on the repatriation of refugees, the PSP leader said Moscow should “offer guarantees.”
