"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. "

Turkey moves for thaw with Syria

SOURCE: BBC News

Turkey's Economy Minister, Redjep Onal, has started talks with Syrian officials in Damascus, aimed at boosting the dwindling trade between the two countries.

Mr Onal, who is accompanied by more than a hundred businessmen, said the visit marked a new period, in which they would cement the warming political ties with economic cooperation.

Turkey and Syria began to normalize their relations two years ago, after Syria agreed to stop sheltering Kurdish rebels and the rebel leader, Abdullah Ocalan, left Damascus.
