Citing an economic ministry statement, it said the IDB loan would be used to build a sewer system in the western city of Hamedan. 


The loan is repayable over 12 years at six percent interest, with a 15 percent reduction in interest charges if the payment is completed on time, IRNA said. — (AFP, Tehran)
