The Mini-Dublin Group contact points, drug liaison officers based in Iran, resident diplomats and the UNODC representative in Tehran visited the Anti-Narcotics Police exhibition on January 16, 2019.


 The visit was aimed at shedding light on the measures carried out by the Islamic Republic of Iran in the field of drug control and the projected advocacy activities within the partnership program (2016-2019) in collaboration with the Tehran-based UNODC and the Anti-Narcotics Police.


In addition to the Mini-Dublin Group contact points (Poland, Hungary, Britain, Austria, Germany, Russia, Denmark, Czech Republic, Spain, Australia, The Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Italy, Sweden, France and Belgium), the Tehran-based UNODC representative, the Georgian ambassador as well as the Russian, Italian and Chinese DLOs also participated in the visit. The delegates became familiar with the achievements of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the field of drug control in the past years as well as the latest measures for combating the scourge of narcotic drugs by the Anti-Narcotics Police.


The Chief of the Anti-Narcotics Police, Brigadier General Zahedian thanked the representatives of the Mini-Dublin Group for attending the visit as well as the follow-up by the UNODC office in Tehran. He touched upon the global nature of the issue of narcotic drugs and the international responsibility of nations and underscored the need for expansion of cooperation with the Mini-Dublin Group and their support for the Islamic Republic of Iran in the campaign against illicit drugs.
In the meantime, the Director General for International Affairs of the Drug Control Headquarters, Mr. Rahim Saki said that the exhibition puts on display a small portion of services provided by the Islamic Republic of Iran to the global community in its combat against illicit drugs. He termed the participants as diplomats and added that despite the existence of common interests, the contacts are very limited. He underlined that the exhibition portrays the law enforcement aspect of activities on the frontline of the battle against illicit drugs. He said that Iran surpasses certain European countries in the fields of prevention, training, research and treatment of addicts. He added that collective interests on the basis of international documents namely the principle of international shared responsibility are obtained through the expansion of cooperation. He said that the question that arises is that what have you done in this regard as representatives of European countries? He concluded by voicing Iran’s readiness for cooperation in all fields.
On the sidelines of the visit, the Chief of the Anti-Narcotics Police and the Director General for International Affairs of the Drug Control Headquarters as well as the Georgian Ambassador attended a joint meeting and examined bilateral issues and emphasized the promotion of cooperation in areas related to narcotic drugs and exchange of technical delegations.
