The proposal urges th e Iranian regime and Hezbollah to refrain from dragging Lebanon into a war that would only lead to destruction. It also calls on the international community to exert pressure to halt border escalation and to cease external interference in Lebanon, using it as a platform for conveying messages. General Assembly and the Parliamentary Foreign Relations Committee of the European People's Party The Kataeb Leader affirmed that what is happening in the Middle East is the result of the international community's failure to find a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Gemayel emphasized that the Lebanese people do not want to be dragged into war, saying that country is held hostage by an armed militia that seizes its decisions and institutions. He pointed out that the Lebanese people aspire to live in peace, seek freedom and openness to the world. 'The European Union should take a firmer and clearer stance regarding the instability in the region and in my country, Lebanon,' he stressed. Regarding the Syr ian refugee crisis, Gemayel indicated: 'Lebanon cannot sustain this burden alone. The war has ended in Syria and the Syrian refugees should return to their country.' Gemayel called on the European Parliament to support Lebanon. 'We have borne this burden for 12 years. It is not Lebanon's responsibility but rather the world's,' he affirmed.
