star this property answer text <p>​We have called on the Lebanese Government to ensure that any operation or actions that impact on the homes of refugees are done in full accordance with Lebanese laws and international principals, after thorough consultation with those affected, relevant Non Governmental Organisations, and the UN, and only once appropriate alternative accommodation has been put in place for those affected. Following lobbying from the international donor community, including this Government, and after negotiations with the United Nations Refugee Agency, UNHCR, and refugee communities, the Government of Lebanon has agreed to postpone the demolition operation in Arsal to 1 July, to allow refugees more time to comply with the order, or find alternative accommodation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​​Lebanon's refugee crisis has been raised with the Lebanese Government by the UK Prime Minister, Department for International Development and the Foreign &amp; Commonwealth Office; most recently in March by former Minister of State for the Middle East and North Africa, Alistair Burt. Lebanon has shown enormous generosity in hosting an estimated 1.5 million Syrian refugees. The UK is supporting Lebanon to meet the humanitarian needs of both refugees and vulnerable Lebanese communities. We support the UN judgement that conditions in Syria are not yet conducive for return. Syrian authorities bear responsibility for improving conditions for return, including providing verifiable assurances on security, safety, and respect for international law. The UK remains clear that any refugee returns to Syria must take place voluntarily, in safety and dignity, in line with international humanitarian law and when conditions allow.</p> more like this
