Mikati has reached out to a number of diplomats to procure assistance for Syrian refugees residing in Lebanon, The (Beirut) Daily Star reported.
"This issue [of refugees] is a main priority for the Lebanese government, given its political, social, health and security repercussions on Lebanon," said Mikati in a statement from his office.
"Despite many promises made to Lebanon in the past, particularly in the [January] Kuwait donors conference whereby Arab and international assistance in providing relief for refugees [was promised], the Lebanese government has received little support so far," Mikati said.
"This is happening at a time when the number of refugees is increasing and the Lebanese government finds itself unable to cope with the increasing cost of relief efforts," he added.
