Indonesia Assures That Haze Will Not Reoccur This Year

KUALA LUMPUR: Indonesia has assured other Asean countries including Malaysia that it would prevent haze from occurring this year, said Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar.

"I am very confident following assurances from our Indonesian counterparts on their tremendous efforts in 2016.

"By 2020 hopefully we will be able to achieve zero-haze status," he told reporters after chairing the 19th meeting of the Asean sub-regional ministerial steering committee on trans-boundary haze pollution, at Le Meridien Hotel, here, today.
