BEIJING, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- Environmental quality is the only criterion to measure the performance of the environment watchdog, Vice Minister for the Environment Pan Yue said on Monday, vowing to further reduce air pollution.

To improve air quality, environment regulators should not only focus on reducing emissions of major pollutants but all polluting discharge, Pan said in an interview.

"There are many factors that have an influence on air quality, therefore, total emission regulation is needed," he added.
