"We have done everything we can domestically, the problem is external," said Christodoulides, adding that they are in a state of crisis because of the growing migration crisis.

As the EU prepares to increase financial assistance to Lebanon, he emphasized that the Beirut government must take steps to prevent the flow of irregular migrants in return.
