Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt: Damascus Duo

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt visit two Iraqi families in the Jaramana district of southern Damascus (the Syrian capital) on Friday (October 2).

The couple are calling attention to the the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi refugees who remain in exile. Angie shared, “Most Iraqi refugees cannot return to Iraq in view of the severe trauma they experienced there, the uncertainty linked to the coming Iraqi elections, the security issues and the lack of basic services. They will, therefore, be in need of continued support from the international community.”

After meeting with Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and his wife, Asma al-Assad, Angie said, “It is clear that the Syrian people, no matter the challenges or difficulties they may face, have always shown generous hospitality to people in need. I hope that the rest of the world recognizes that we all have to share this burden and continue to take care of Iraqi refugees.”
