FNA- Iranian Deputy Interior Minister Hossein Zolfaqari announced that the country has dispatched two teams to China to be trained to confront terrorism and counterfeit identification documents.
Zolfaqari said that the teams left Iran for China last week in line with implementation of a cooperation agreement between Iran’s interior ministry and China’s ministry of public security.
He added that Iran has also sent three other teams to China over the past six months to become familiar with the structure of the country’s police and the ministry of public security, as well as ways to fight cyber crimes and drug trafficking.
Pakistan and Afghanistan are two origins of producing and trafficking of various types of narcotic in the region.
The anti-drug squads of the Iranian Law Enforcement Police have intensified their countrywide campaign against drug-trafficking through staging long-term systematic operations since 2010.
The Iranian anti-narcotic police have always staged periodic, but short-term, operations against drug traffickers and dealers, but the latest reports – which among others indicate an improved and systematic dissemination of information – reveal that the world’s most forefront and dedicated anti-narcotic force (as UN drug-campaign assessments put it) has embarked on a long-term countrywide plan to crack down on the drug trade since 7 years ago.
