Hikmat Deeb for the "new": the fourth basin in the port of Beirut can not be accepted at all
MP Hikmat Deeb during the "Al-Hadath" program on the channel "Al-Jadid" with her colleague Catherine Hanna discussed the issue of filling the fourth river basin in the port of Beirut, he pointed out that "Today the Minister of Public Works and Transportation Joseph Fenianus is, Four scenarios and options are given to option one and no. 2 and it is $ 270 million while we occasionally attended $ 134 million from the minister, and we said it was today costs $ 30 million, $ 270 million, and that figure is scary. "
"Our ministers and other ministers reject this issue, we do not anticipate things. The story is that there is a plan to disrupt the port." This is the strategic national port and nobody takes such a crazy step unless there are currencies and millions of dollars, "he added.
"There is no reason to fill the fourth basin to find places for containers, and I have shown the maps that there are places for containers and that the number of containers is decreasing and decreasing." There is a foolish study by the parties involved, the interim authority for the management of the port of Beirut, and they invent works that damage the port and disrupt the main catchment area to get money. "
"I am accused and responsible for this accusation, unless there is a real position," Deeb said in response to a question whether he was accused of it. "This basin can not be accepted at all.
"We are in a popular movement, in the government and in the House of Representatives, and when we stopped the project in the past, we will stop it today," said Deeb.
