    A Russian delegation has arrived in Lebanon to discuss plans to repatriate Syrian refugees.

    There are almost one million registered Syrians living in Lebanon and the plans to return the refugees are supported by host nations Lebanon and Jordan.

    However, the UN and some refugees say it is still unsafe to return.
