Head of the Department of Environment (DoE) Masumeh Ebtekar, emphasized the need to promote environmental cooperation between Iran and Spain. In a meeting with Spanish ambassador to Iran, Pedro Villena, she said the government has adopted a plan to protect the environment and enhanced international cooperation in the field. “Iran is ready to share experience with Spain in this respect,” she said.

“Political borders cannot stall challenges that face the global environment,” IRNA quoted Ebtekar as saying. She also invited Spanish experts and firms to take part in the 14th International Environment Exhibition (ENVIRO 2015) on February 21-24.

The Spanish envoy hailed Iran’s environmental programs and said “they will encourage Spain to boost cooperation with Tehran.” Spain also faces similar problems in certain areas, but, “we have managed to tackle them through proper management of agriculture and promotion of greenhouse cultivation,” he added.
