Saudi signs anti-smoking pact

Published on May 19, 2005 by in General

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.
