Tehran, Nov 7, IRNA – Mayor of Tehran Pirouz Hanachi expressed readiness for solving air pollution problems by introducing counselors and active companies.

Speaking in a meeting with Sarajevo Mayor Abdulah Skaka, Hanachi referred to commonalities between Bosnia and Herzegovina, especially cultural ones.

Referring to wastes and air pollution as an epidemic problem in all big cities Tehran is ready to have any cooperation with Sarajevo with this regard.

Stressing on finding the root cause of pollution, he said 80% of pollution in Iran is due to fossil fuels.

Due to the fact that 40% of commuting is being done by personal cars, Tehran faces inversion in winters, Hanachi said.
