Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit urged Monday the international community to support Lebanon.
He mentioned, after a meeting with President Michel Aoun at the Baabda Palace, the world’s “double standards” in dealing with the Ukrainian crisis and with the Lebanese crisis.
“The world must not forget that Lebanon has been under pressure as a result of Arab refugees on its territory,” Abul Gheit added.
The Arab League chief went on to say that, for more than 10 years, Lebanon has paid a high cost with hundreds of thousands of refugees on its territory and without any external support.
On another note, Abul Gheit said he has sensed that Aoun is determined to hold the parliamentary elections, adding that the Arab League is ready to send Lebanon a team to monitor the upcoming elections.
Abul Gheit also revealed that a consultative meeting of the Arab Ministers will be held in Beirut mid-year.
