Tehran, YJC. Chief of Iran’s Narcotics Police says that despite efforts to lower Afghanistan’s production of narcotic plantation, the amount has increased.
Speaking in interview with Fars news agency, the Chief of Iran’s Narcotics Police Brigadier General Ali Moayedi pointed to educational courses held by Iran for Afghan anti-drugs police staff and said "We hope to reduce the smuggling of narcotic drugs by exporting our know-how to other countries.”

"Thanks to the well-defined programs by the Iranian Police, now we discover less drugs at the borders,” he said.

Head of the Narcotics Police of Iran added "We are investigating the production in Afghanistan. Our estimations say that production in Afghanistan has increased as compared to the past.”

Moayedi stated that like Iran, Afghanistan suffers tens of casualties every year meeting drugs, adding "There are entities which introduce Afghanistan as the criminal agent in relation to drugs, but Iran does not hold such a view and fights it.”
