Kiosks Will Be Banned From Selling Cigarettes

Street kiosks and newsstands will be banned from selling tobacco and snacks during a new round of lease agreement the municipality is set to sign with them, the managing director of Tehran Municipality’s Organizing Industries and Urban Jobs Company has announced. “Penalties for flouting the ban could include fines or even closure,” ISNA also quoted Farhad Afshar as saying.
