Iran to share experiences with Iraq on anti-narcotics

Tehran, March 2, IRNA – Chief of Iran's Anti-Narcotics Police Brigadier-General Majid Karimi on Tuesday urged mutual cooperation with Iraq on anti-narcotics.

The Anti-Narcotics Police of Iran has achieved favorable accomplishments in areas such as countering transit and drug trafficking at home and abroad so that the discovery of 1,150 tons of narcotics by Iran in 2020 proves the fact, Brigadier-General Karimi said in a meeting with Director of Iraq's Anti-Narcotics Department Major General Mazen Kamel Mansour.

He said that Iran's anti-narcotics police have made significant progress in various fields, particularly the training of drug-sniffing dogs and a specialized drug lab, and expressed Iran's full readiness to cooperate jointly with the Iraqi Anti-Narcotics Police and share experiences.

Undoubtedly, the presence of transregional states is spreading the ominous phenomenon of drug trafficking in the Middle East, he said, adding that the studies have shown that the majority of terrorist groups' financial resources come from drug trafficking.
