Minister: Iran to Intensify War on Drug Lords

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar underlined that the country will intensify its combat against drug lords and mafias in the current Iranian year (started on March 20). 

"Intensifying campaign against the main agents and heads of drug-trafficking networks and transit of narcotics and hallucinating drugs, waging effective campaign against Crystal (methamphetamine) production and smuggling networks, intensifying control over border crossings and bottlenecks, increasing border control to decrease drug smuggling into the country and decreasing counter-security incidents at borders specially through blocking the borders in Southeastern and Northwestern Iran are among (our) plans for combating supply (of narcotics) in the current year," Mohammad Najjar said. 

Mohammad Najjar, who is also Secretary-General of Iran's Anti-Narcotics Headquarters, said that Iran plans to play an effective role in regional and international decision-makings against narcotics. 

He added that diplomatic ties with the neighboring states against drug-trafficking and transiting and mutual cooperation with these states against narcotics are among the other agendas of his ministry for this year. 

Iran lies on a transit corridor between opium producing Afghanistan and drug dealers in Europe, but the Islamic Republic has emerged as the leading country fighting drug trafficking after making 89 percent of the world's total opium seizures. 

Yet, the anti-drug squads of the Iranian Law Enforcement Police have intensified their countrywide campaign against drug-trafficking through staging long-term systematic operations in recent months. 

According to official estimates, Iran's battle against drugs cost the country around $1 billion annually. Strategies pursued by Tehran include digging canals, building barriers and installing barbed wire to seal the country's borders, specially in the East.
