MP Faysal Karami said that “Tripoli is a history, a cultural heritage and a dream of advancing towards an economic and social future and a pivotal role not only in Lebanon but in the region as a whole,” reiterating Tripoli’s inability “to wait any longer for the reconstruction of Syria and Aleppo as promised, so it is more useful to begin the reconstruction and development of our regions with the help of friends, led by the Chinese giant.”

Karami made these remarks as he welcomed in Tripoli the Chinese Ambassador to Lebanon, Wang Kejian, and an accompanying embassy delegation.

“We explained to the ambassador the economic situation in Tripoli and discussed the proposed solutions, especially in the near absence of the State and State projects, and under promises of developmental projects made for the last three decades, with only a few of those promises being kept. Moreover, what has been implemented was either doe wrong or in a suspicious manner,” he said, assuring that “What connects Tripoli with China is great, especially as Tripoli is one of the main cities on the Silk Road and has the potential to play a pivotal role in the region.”

For his part, the Chinese Ambassador thanked Karami for his hospitality and for the detailed explanation of the reality of the capital of the North Tripoli, and stressed that “the city has great potentials and elements that put it in the ranks of major cities through the pumping of investments, from its sons first and then from the outside,” promising to “relay what he heard from Karami of ideas and investment projects to the city’s vital facilities, to officials, companies and investors in China.”
