BEIRUT, Lebanon, Lebanese President, Michel Aoun, on Friday, urged the Executive Director of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), Henrietta Fore, to address the Syrian refugee crisis in Lebanon, "in a bid to alleviate their sufferings."

"The Syrian children who were born in Lebanon, since the beginning of the Syrian war, back in 2011, are now seven years old. They are living in difficult health, social, and educational conditions, despite the care that Lebanon provides to them and their families," Aoun told Fore.

The Lebanese state has suffered heavy losses in educational and social infrastructure, which has negatively affected state allocations, in service of Lebanese children, not to mention the post-graduation sufferings of the Lebanese youth, who suffer unemployment, due to the high number of Syrian workers in the Lebanese job market, the president said.

The president said, the United Nations and its organisations should take into account the dangers that might affect neighbouring countries, when addressing the crises of other countries.

Fore, on her part, hailed the Lebanese efforts to host Syrian refugees.

"The Lebanese are worthy of international support. UNICEF will be a strong voice, in support of Lebanon, and will make sure to defend its rights," Fore said.
