Syrian and Lebanese FMs to discuss on refugee returns

Damascus, Oct 9 (Prensa Latina) Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Al-Mekdad and his Lebanese counterpart Abdullah Bou Habib on Monday addressed a series of issues laying stress on the return of displaced Syrians in Lebanon.

The two ministers discussed the upcoming visit the Lebanese foreign minister intends to make to Damascus to discuss the return of refugees residing in the Lebanese nation, and ways to put an end to all obstacles to their return, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

They also discussed the current developments in the Gaza Strip and preparations for the upcoming emergency meeting of the Council of Arab Foreign Ministers in Cairo, the Egyptian capital.
