Syrian refugees should not be a part of political games led by some states to gain financial benefit, Lebanese State Minister for Presidential Affairs Pierre Raffoul told Sputnik Saturday.

BEIRUT (Sputnik) – Lebanon, which borders Syria, has received over a million of refugees from the war-torn country since the crisis erupted in 2011.

"I think there are those who seek continuation of the refugee crisis to get some financial benefit or improve the conditions of negotiations. But trading human life is unacceptable, it is necessary to save them [the Syrian people], to lead them out of the political game," Raffoul said.

He noted that the Lebanese authorities would soon resume discussions with Damascus on the return of refugees as many Syrian regions were already safe.
