"Of course it's not enough. Many conferences have been convened on the purpose to offer assistance to the countries hosting refugees. That means Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon, mainly. And many packages have been promised to Lebanon. Unfortunately, not more than on third of this package has been received by Lebanon. The amount, if I am not mistaken, out of $3 billion pledged in Kuwait like two years ago, Lebanon received only $800 million," Nassar said.
"And recently, there was the conference in London, and they pledged billions of dollars, if I am not mistaken, more than $5 billion to those countries hosting refugees. Until now didn't know how much we would get out of this amount. Although, if we take it comparing to the population of Lebanon, Lebanon is bearing the most important burden among the others," the ambassador added.
Lebanon needs the aid to help refugees, not Lebanese citizens, he noted, stressing that the country does not have many spare resources and its education and health systems are strained.
