Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi over the weekend called on Lebanese officials to come to together to mitigate the effects of the situation in Iraq, warning about the repercussions for the entire region, especially Lebanon.Speaking on Tripoli, Rifi said that "the will to live in Tripoli triumphs over death, and Tripoli has become a safe destination despite developments surrounding Lebanon".He added that the situation in the city, torn by intermittent Syria-linked violence for three years, will not go back to what it was, and called on the state to encourage more development and tourism projects in the northern city.
