A delegation from the Arab League will visit Lebanon Monday to discuss the Syrian refugee crisis and its implications for Lebanon, though Arab diplomatic sources remained pessimistic that tangible solutions would be reached. The flood of Syrian refugees into Lebanon and the effect this has had on Lebanese infrastructure and public services have prompted officials to implore diplomatic representatives from countries in the region to pressure the Arab League to find a solution to the crisis. Lebanon is the focus of the League's efforts due to the effect 1.2 million registered Syrian refugees are having on the country's economy and infrastructure.Diplomatic sources from Arab countries, however, said they did not harbor high expectations for the delegation's visit to Beirut due to the League's deteriorating position in the region.
