UN Urges Stronger Int'l Support for Iran's Anti-Narcotic Efforts

"The United Nations appreciates Iran's valuable and unique efforts to fight the smuggling of narcotics," Martin Nesirky stated.

"The UN requests that the global community have more cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran in the all-out fight against narcotics," Nesirky added.

The UN official went on to say that during a meeting between Executive Director of United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Yuri Fedotov and Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the two sides discussed the means to enhance the UN's cooperation with Iran to enforce a more serious fight against drug trafficking.

Last week, Fedotov called on all the world countries to increase their assistance and cooperation with Iran's campaign against illicit drugs and drug-trafficking.

"World countries should cooperate in the campaign against drugs in a bid to help Iran win success," Fedotov said after visiting Iran's Eastern borders on Tuesday.

He hailed Iran's positive measures in the fight against narcotics, and said, "Iran's activities in this regard cannot be ignored and I pay tribute to the martyrs killed and those disabled in the combat against drugs."

According to the UNODC, these days, 93 percent of the world's opium is produced in Iran's neighboring country Afghanistan, 60% of which is destined for the EU and specially the US markets, and the main transit route is Iran, where the country's dedicated police squad risk their lives to make the most discoveries of drug cargoes, disband drug-trafficking gangs and organizations and much more in a bid to rescue not only the Iranian youth but also all those living in Europe and the US.
