Iran, Turkey to Fight Terror, Narcotics

The law was passed by Iranian lawmakers nearly a month ago and approved by the Council of Guardians, a body which reviews parliamentary legislation to make sure it conforms to the Iranian Constitution and the Islamic Sharia law.

Under the deal, Tehran and Ankara have agreed to cooperate in fighting terrorist activities and any criminal act which threatens the national security and sovereignty of either country.

They will also work together in preventing and combating organized crime and narco-trafficking as well as the illegal production of weapons, explosives and munitions, and of nuclear, radioactive, biological and chemical materials, not to mention weapons of mass destruction.

Their joint campaign also includes fight against forgery, cyber and telecom crimes, and human trafficking.

As stipulated in the agreement, an act of terror is any activity which is carried out to exert pressure on a government or government body by using or threatening to use violence in a bid to intimidate the society or gain political/economic concessions.

Under the agreement, both sides are obliged to counter terrorist groups as well as affiliated organizations and sponsor bodies.
