Abbas: Palestinians in Lebanon are “guests” who will “return to their lands” (i.e., Israel)

“President Mahmoud Abbas said yesterday [July 3, 2013] that the Palestinian refugees are guests in Lebanon and [that they] will not interfere in its internal affairs.
In a joint press conference with his Lebanese counterpart [President of the Republic of Lebanon] Michel Suleiman, the President [Abbas] stated that the Palestinian presence in Lebanon is temporary, until they return to their lands and that there is no one among us who believes in settling [the refugees in Lebanon.]”
