Jreissati: Cabinet must put hand on 4th basin file

FEBRUARY 3, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Former Minister Salim Jreissati said that the cabinet should carry on its responsibility to treat the file relevant to the fourth basin of Beirut seaport.

Jreissati’s stance came Tuesday in the context of the regular weekly meeting for the Bloc of Reform and Change, under the chairmanship of General Michel Aoun, in Rabieh.

Turning to the Janneh water dam, the bloc said that works in the dam must continue, considering the decision to stop works in it as “typically political.”

“Enough tampering with developmental projects and hurting people’s rights and interests,” said the bloc that added that developmental projects must not be hurt as their accomplishment serve the high national interest.
