FNA – The Iranian defense ministry manufactured the country’s first drive-through X-ray system to scan the loads in trucks and cargos.
The X-ray scanning system was inaugurated on Tuesday in the presence of the defense ministry officials at Bazargan bordering areas’ customs office and was put into operation.
According to a Deputy Defense Minister for Industrial Affairs Brigadier General Reza Mozaffarinia, the new system can inspect the loads in one minute, its X-ray beam infiltrates into the load without any damage and the image of the load is processed in high quality and easily.
The X-ray system can prevent trafficking of forbidden goods into the country.
Pakistan and Afghanistan are two origins of producing and trafficking 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 five years ago.
