Interior Minister to Represent Iran in Paris Pact Conference

User Rating:  / 2

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar is due to attend the ministerial conference of the Paris Pact Partners on Combating Illicit Traffic supported by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Vienna on Tuesday.


The Paris Pact is one of the most important frameworks in the fight against opiates originating in Afghanistan.

It is aimed at reducing illicit traffic in opiates including opium poppy cultivation, production and global consumption of heroin and other opiates, and at establishing a broad international coalition to combat illicit traffic in opiates. It relies on the commitments and ambitions of its partner-countries working in consultation with the UNODC and in full conformity with the three international drug control conventions and the Political Declaration and Plan of Action adopted by the High-level Segment of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs in March 2009.

According to the UNODC, these days, 93% of the world's opium is produced in the neighboring Afghanistan, 60% of which is destined for the EU and specially 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.

According to the statistical figures released by the UN, Iran ranks first among the world countries in preventing entry of drugs and decreasing demand for narcotics.

The United Nations credits Iran with the seizure of 89% of the opium netted around the world.

Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Iranian police have lost more than 3700 of their personnel in the country's combat against narcotics.
