President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that removal of unjust anti-Iran sanctions would lure investment in all areas, the environment in particular.
President Rouhani made the remark in a ceremony marking the 10th Iran National Environment Prize.
He said settlement of environmental problems and conservation of natural resources requires a balanced use of nature and technology, promotion of culture and investment.
President Rouhani stressed that his government attaches great importance to the environment.
‘Reviving the Orumiyeh Lake, the second largest lake in the Middle East after the Caspian Sea and the sixth largest salt water lake in the planet, was among the first bills ratified by the present administration,’ he added.
President Rouhani further highlighted the role that the Iranian nation plays in preserving the environment.
