Iran inks water treatment agreement with S Korea

TEHRAN, Aug. 08 (MNA) – Iran's deputy minister of energy for water and wastewater Rahim Meidani said Iran experiencing 15 consecutive years of drought, signed new cooperation agreements with South Korea in the field of water and waste reduction.

"The South Koreans have valuable experience in the field of environmental technology and water and wastewater management. Hence, these MoUs were signed with the aim of sharing experiences, facilitating investment in Iran and manpower training," Meidani said during a meeting with South Korean Deputy Minister of Environment Lee Min-ho on Sunday.

Meidani underlined that 99 percent of the urban population in Iran has safe and standard drinking water.

South Korean Deputy Minister of Environment Lee Min-ho, for his part, said developing water and wastewater systems is one of Iran's priorities and we hope to help Iranian companies further develop these technologies.

Lee said his visit was a follow-up to South Korean President Park Geun-hye's tour of Iran in May to enhance cooperation between the two countries.
