"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

UK Says Lebanon Continues to be the Focus of International Attention- Naharnet

One year on from the London conference for “Supporting Syria and the Region”, Lebanon continues to be the “focus of international attention” in Brussels, the British Embassy in Lebanon said on Wednesday.
At the Brussels conference on “Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region” that was held earlier in the day, the UK reiterated its “ongoing support to the Lebanese people and the Government of Lebanon as it continues to generously host large numbers of refugees until it’s safe for them to return home,” an Embassy statement said.
In his speech, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson paid tribute to countries hosting millions of refugees including Lebanon, saying: “We are all humbled by the contribution and sacrifice of our friends such as Lebanon.”
