BEIRUT, Jan. 6 (Xinhua) -- Lebanon's Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour revealed Sunday that the Arab League (AL) had agreed to hold a meeting on the issue of Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
Mansour said in a press release that the emergency meeting, made at Lebanon's request, will be held on Jan. 13 and will include Arab foreign ministers.
The meeting will talk on helping Lebanon to tackle the burden on the influx of Syrian refugees, and Mansour said that he will present during the upcoming two days a comprehensive file on the case of the refugees and their needs.
The Lebanese government had repeatedly stated that it could no longer handle the burden of refugees flooding the country from Syria.
