UN to Help Iran Combat Sandstorms

Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Program Erik Solheim said the international body is set to assist Iran combat sandstorms.
Solheim is currently visiting Iran, as he participated in the International Conference on Combating Sand and Dust Storms held in Tehran from July 3 to 5, IRNA reported.
President Hassan Rouhani, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and the head of Iran's Department of Environment, Massoumeh Ebtekar, also attended the conference.
On Tuesday, Solheim and 30 other conference attendees visited the Hawizeh Marshes, a complex of marshes that straddles the Iran-Iraq border.
The UN Resident Coordinator in Iran Gary Lewis had earlier said Iran is at the forefront of the battle against sandstorms.
