Border Guards Seize 3 Tons of Narcotics in Iran in 1 Month

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian border guards have seized nearly 3 tons of illicit drugs along the country’s borders in the last Iranian month (January 21-February 20), Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Border Guards Brigadier General Mohammad Kazzem Taqavi announced on Monday.

"The Iranian border guards have seized 2,900 kilograms of narcotics last month," General Taqavi told reporters.

He said by controlling the country's Eastern borders, specially the common border with Afghanistan, where narcotics are produced and come from, the Iranian border guards have tried to reduce the flow of illicit drugs to minimum levels.

General Taqavi noted that that six drug traffickers were killed and 19 others were arrested by the border guards in the same period.

Iran lies on a major drug route between Afghanistan and Europe, as well as the Persian Gulf states.

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.

Iran has long complained that the global community, specially the western nations, do not contribute their role in the campaign against drugs, saying that Iran is making lone efforts to block the transit of narcotics from Afghanistan to Europe and the US. Meantime, the Iranian police officials maintain that drug production in Afghanistan has undergone a 40-fold increase since the US-led invasion of the country in 2001.

While Afghanistan produced only 185 tons of opium per year under the Taliban, according to the UN statistics, since the US-led invasion, drug production has surged to 3,400 tons annually. In 2007, the opium trade reached an estimated all-time production high of 8,200 tons.
