Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 17 / Trend T. Jafarov /
There is weak state control for enterprises producing mineral water in Iran. About 50 percent is polluted, member of the Iranian Parliamentary Health Commission Abduljabbar Kerimi was quoted by the Iranian parliament's official website icana.ir as saying.
He said half the country's polluted mineral water was confirmed by the Health Ministry. It submitted the relevant statistics to the parliament.
A major reason for low-quality mineral water is the discrepancy with domestic factories standards, he said.
