Baku. Nijat Mustafayev - APA-Economics. We will see results of oil-polluted area clean-up works in five to six years, said Huseyngulu Bagirov, Azerbaijan’s Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources.
According to him, much of the work has fallen to the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR).
“The Ministry of Emergency Situations is also working hard. We will see good results in 5-6 years,” he added.
