"The recent developments in Lebanon regarding Palestinian refugees should be resolved only through dialogue." Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said.
During a Fatah meeting in Ramallah, Palestinian president stressed out that he would exert efforts to prevent any attempt to undermine the excellent relationship between the Palestinians and the Lebanese people.
The Lebanese Labor Ministry has recently decided to regulate illegal foreign labor, a move originally intended to target Syrian refugees, but which will have ramifications on Palestinian refugees as well.
"We do not want any tensions or escalation with Lebanon, and we want to foil any attempt by anyone who wants to destroy the excellent relations between us and our brothers in Lebanon," Abbas noted.
The Palestinian president also reaffirmed that his position has not changed with regards to the US "Deal of the Century".
“Our position has not changed: We will not accept it [Deal of the Century] and the Manama workshop,” he said, in reference to the Manama meeting held last month under US patronage in Bahrain.
