Cyprus president asks EU Commission chief to get Lebanon to stop migrants from leaving its shores

President Nikos Christodoulides told reporters that Lebanon is the beneficiary of significant EU financial aid for both its own citizens and for the hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees it continues to host, but that doesn’t come without strings attached.
