Thank you very much Mr. Minister (of Education Elias Abou-Saab) and I’m very glad to be here with you today. I spend a lot of time in meetings in New York and also when I travel around the world.

I am very glad to be back in Lebanon. I have been here several times. I consider myself a friend of Lebanon and of the Lebanese people. I know I am visiting you at a very crucial period of your history. I was here two years ago and the numbers of refugees were less than 150,000 and now we have almost ten times that number and we understand fully the strains that this has on the Lebanese society. We admire your generosity in receiving such great numbers of refugees but we also understand that of course this leads to considerable consequences for communities in your country in terms of strains on health, schools, jobs and so forth.
