Oil minister warns about environmental consequences of sanctions

Economy - Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganahon on Tuesday warned about environmental consequences of illegal sanctions against sovereign states.

Speaking at the 10th International Energy Conference, he noted that illegal sanctions against independent states imposed great sufferings upon people and risked their life.


Zangeneh called air pollution resulted from consumption of dirty fuels as one of the consequences of sanctions.


As the result of sanctions, environmentalistˈs efforts could not prevent continued destruction of nature and countries could not regulate and execute environment protection policies, he added.

Iran will continue its efforts to enhance its oil and gas output in a bid to secure worldˈs energy stability, he added.
