Tehran condoles Canada over heat wave deaths

July 9, 2018 - 20:10

TEHRAN – Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Monday extended sympathies to the Canadian nation over the recent heat wave-linked death tolls.

Qassemi called on all countries to give special attention to climate change and its consequences and fulfil their commitments to counter this phenomenon, Mehr reported.

Condemning U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, the spokesman said it is necessary that big industrial countries stick to their environmental commitments.

Industrial states have a major share in producing greenhouse gases and hence in global warming and other phenomena like drought and sand and dust storms, he stated.
