Mahmoud Abbas from Baabda: Palestinian refugees are guests in Lebanon

Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas said on Thursday following his meeting with President Michel Aoun at Baabda Palace “Palestinian refugees are guests in Lebanon until their certain return to their homeland Palestine.”

Abbas said that they were from the beginning against terrorism.

“We have called from the start to hold constructive dialogue and to preserve the unity of the Arab territories,” Abbas asserted.

On the other hand, Abbas said that “Lebanon will remain a beacon of civilization, knowledge and steadfastness in the Arab countries.”

Abbas thanked the Lebanese authority and the people for hosting the Palestinians.

On another note, the Palestinian President noted that “Israel insists on occupying our land and keeping our people in a big prison, and this is what we will not accept. We will continue to work through political and diplomatic means, to implement Security Council resolutions.”
