Russian Ambassador: cooperation with the Syrian government to participate in post-war reconstruction


The president of the Gathering of Lebanese Businessmen and Businesswomen (RDCL World), Fuad Zamakhal, disclosed during a lunch on February 5, with the Russian Ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zaspekin, that Lebanon can play a pivotal role in the reconstruction of war-torn Syria. Due to its leading humanitarian contribution to the crisis of the displaced Syrians on its territory, Lebanon is entitled to participate, directly or indirectly, and in partnership and synergy with Russian companies in rebuilding the neighboring country, Zamakhal said. He hoped Lebanon can extend this help through resident and expatriate firms and hence expand its stake in the reconstruction project. Lebanon, RDCL president explained, is going through its most difficult period in its history, at the economic, social, political and security levels, in addition to general recession and the shrinking investment and tourism activities. As regards the ongoing conflicts in the region, Lebanon is at an equal distance from all parties, Zamakhal noted, pointing to the essential role Russia has played in ending the fighting and combatting terrorism in Syria.” Zaspekin, for his part, pointed out that with the gradual return of stability to Syria and the improved humanitarian situation there, a new and broader horizon opens for the return of refugees and the reconstruction of the state with the participation of parties cooperating with the Syrian government. Lebanon shall play a major role in this regard, Zaspekin pledged. (Al Mustaqbal, February 6, 2018)
