Aliyev warned about the responsibility for cutting down trees.
Baku. "Cutting trees should be discontinued. Only in rare cases it is possible , but with the permission of the Ministry of Environment, "
said Ilham Aliyev at the Cabinet meeting on April 13. Every year should be the year of ecology as the environmental situation in
particular for Baku and Absheron is very significant, Aliyev said. Azerbaijan has over 200 years of producing oil , which led to the
formation of oil-polluted puddles. "I have given instructions to begin a campaign of planting trees between drilling rigs. We will turn
this place into a green zone. In the city center acted an iodine plant, which was closed, but the waste does more damage to the
environment . In the Balakhani landfill waste is always burned and the smoke not only poisons Balakhany residents, but the entire city.
However, for big money a factory was built on the garbage disposal and the problem was solved," said Aliyev. He threatened that those
who cut down trees will be held accountable, "and this is the last warning." The President also recalled that in April Azerbaijan switched
to the fuel Euro-4, which will significantly improve the atmosphere of the city and clear it from polluting cars.
