BEIRUT – The international community is “dismayed by repeated false accusations” that it is working to settle Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Germany’s ambassador in Beirut, Martin Huth, said on Thursday.

Lebanese caretaker foreign minister Gebran Bassil has accused the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR and the international community of preventing Syrian refugees returning home from Lebanon.

Huth said in an emailed statement to Reuters that the international community was “fully aware of the heavy burden Lebanon is bearing” through hosting more than a million refugees.
