Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura arrived in Lebanon as part of his second tour of a visit to the region to “acquire more information and also more ideas.”
Following his meeting with Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam, the Special Envoy said, “We are still in the process of understanding what has changed in the region in terms of some perception of how to address in a political format, through a political process, the conflict in Syria.”

Regarding the price Lebanon has to pay for its hospitality in taking in Syrian refugees and the attacks against the Lebanese Hezbollah movement, Mr. de Mistura said, “The Lebanese political environment should be stabilizing the sooner and the better because the stronger Lebanon is the easier it will be to face what I think is going to be a very crucial period but hopefully with some type or form of political process in Syria.”

According to the United Nations News Center, 2.5 million people are being sheltered in Lebanon and other neighboring countries. In Lebanon, one out of every four people is a Syrian refugee.
