War on Drug
Iranian Foreign Minister has warned about the threats posed by the expansion of terrorism and narcotrafficking in Afghanistan to regional countries.
Iranian police have confiscated more than 1 tone of narcotics in the southeast of the country and apprehended six drug traffickers.
A high-ranking Iranian anti-narcotics official says the country is unrelenting in its fight against drugs as it holds a record in stopping the flow of drugs from its eastern neighbor Afghanistan to the West.
European countries owe Iran a lot for blocking the transit of drugs destined for Europe, the head of the Iranian anti-narcotics police says, noting the Islamic Republic confiscated over 1,200 tons of illicit narcotics last year.
