The Fars News Agency reports that Massoumeh Ebtekar has told Eshagh Jahangiri that Pardisan is "the only ecological park and natural and environmental resource in Tehran." The former administration decided to allow the sale of Pardisan Park, and Ebtekar is now seeking to rescind that decision.

The Ahmadinejad administration issued the permit for the sale of Pardisan Park last May.
