Hariri Says Some Lebanese Politicians ‘Outrunning’ Refugees to Syria

W460

Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri criticized in a tweet on Tuesday what he described as “the rush of some Lebanese politicians to go visit Syria,” in light of the conflict in Lebanon over its ties with the neighboring country largely blamed for the assassination of ex-PM Rafik Hariri.

“Some politicians in Lebanon are rushing to go to Syria even before the displaced (Syrians) do…,” said Hariri in a tweet.

“I wonder why?” he asked.

Hariri was indirectly referring to a visit paid by caretaker Minister of Industry Hussein Hajj Hassan who participated in a business and investment conference in Syria on July 26.

On Tuesday, Hassan said “Lebanon won’t benefit from maintaining a state of hostility with Syria, especially after opening the transit line with Iraq and Jordan through Syria.”

The Hizbullah minister also said that “Hizbullah was not interested in the reconstruction file in Syria and had no private sector.”

Hajj Hassan is not just a politician, he is a Minister in your cabinet. Apparently, you are the last to know and even if you know there is nothing you can do about it.
