Iran and the United Nations emphasize the importance of expanding environmental cooperation

On Sunday, Ali Salajegheh made the statements during a meeting with Stefan Priesner, the UN Resident Coordinator for Iran. 

During the discussion, the two sides emphasized the importance of strengthening international cooperation and UN support in order to address Iran’s, the region’s, and the world’s environmental concerns. 

Salajegheh urged the UN to play a more effective and professional role in the face of unilateral and punitive sanctions against Iran. 

Iran’s potentials, he continued, are important and unique. 

Stefan Priesner, for one, expressed desire and willingness to participate actively, expressing the expectation that multiple UN organizations would be coordinated for necessary cooperation.
