He voiced regret that the Islamic world has been targeted by the US and Zionist regime who intend to create division among Muslim countries, “they have pushed Muslim nations to commit fratricide.”

“One of the biggest harms that threatens our country and the entire world is narcotics,” stressed the Iranian Attorney-General referring to the international transit of drugs from Afghanistan to Europe, “neighborhood with Afghanistan, the producer of 95% of world’s narcotics, is a big problem for Iran.”

“Annually 45,000 legal dossiers are set up in Oman,” recounted the Omani official in the meeting for his part, “out of which one-third is resolved and two-third is referred to the attorney-general.”

The Omani attorney-general highlighted that 900 dossiers of the last 8 months have been on drug abuse and most of the narcotics involved are Heroin, marijuana, and psychedelic drugs.
