Seoul City signed an agreement with Beijing Thursday to make joint efforts in tackling air pollution, including hazardous ultrafine dust that has been increasingly affecting Northeast Asia.
The agreement, signed between Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon and his counterpart Wang Anshun during Park’s one-day visit to the Chinese capital, calls for the establishment of an environmental team within a joint committee in charge of economic and cultural exchange projects.
The committee, set up by the local governments of the two neighboring countries in April of last year, held its first round of talks in October.
