“Moreover, air pollution has heavy medical costs for the people in major cities and therefore officials must take this problem very seriously,” he added.

“The truth is that 80% of air pollution in Tehran is due to a large quantity of non-standard vehicles roaming the streets,” Lahuti continued.

If various cabinets in Iran acted upon their legal duties on development projects, the air pollution in Tehran these days would be much lower.
