Skopje Mayor Petre Silegov believes that some of the mayors of other municipalities around Skopje contributed to the enormous air pollution of the capital.

He told Alfa that the local government could not cope with air pollution alone.

This kind of public pressure will also have to be put on the mayors of Cucer Sandevo, Petrovec, Ilinden, Aracinovo, because part of the pollution that is in the Skopje valley comes from these places, Silegov told Alfa.

This reaction comes after Skopje was today the fifth most polluted city in the world.
