Saudi signs anti-smoking pact

Filed under: General — Tags: , — Khaled A. @ 8:33 am

Now here’s some good news.

Saudi Arabia has ratified the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. As a ratifying nation it will ban tobacco advertising, take measures to protect nonsmokers from secondhand smoke, increase the cost of tobacco products, and make efforts to stop tobacco smuggling. The pact aims at dissuading children from smoking and to help adults drop the habit.
