Wearing air masks, several foreign officials and ambassadors in Bosnia met with Sarajevo Canton's Prime Minister Edin Forto Monday, to discuss the burning issue of air pollution in this canton.

Important talks today between Sarajevo Canton and international partners on air quality,” British Ambassador Matthew Field wrote on his Twitter account. “Good steps are being taken, but more decisive action needs to be taken on all levels.”

An informal group of Sarajevo citizens organised a peaceful protest in front of the Cantonal government building before this meeting.

The protest was attended by some 50 concerned citizens.
