France is set to vote at Elysée Palace for a new protocol to take in 500 Syrian refugees from Lebanon, the state-run National News Agency [NNA] reported Tuesday.
The Cabinet session will be attended by President Francois Hollande, as well as Minister of Interior Bruno le Roux and Minister of Foreign Affairs Jean-Marc Ayrault.
The Sant’Egidio association will also be present, backing the protocol.
Sant’Egidio released a statement, saying "500 Syrian refugees currently living in Lebanon would have full refuge and security, after priority is given to families with children, single women, the elderly, and those with disabilities."
