Interior Ministry Reaffirms Commitment to Drug Eradication

Following the statements of the Iranian Border Commander, assurances were given on counter-narcotics.

Abdul Mateen Qani, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior, in response to the statements of the Iranian border commander, said that no drug threat from Afghanistan is directed towards other countries.

Qani emphasized the joint fight of countries against drugs and also said that the Ministry of Interior of the Islamic Emirate is committed to eradicating drugs in Afghanistan.

The spokesperson added: "The Islamic Emirate is committed to combating drugs and fortunately has been able to eliminate the spread of drugs from Afghanistan in a short time with limited resources. We can confidently say that currently, there is no drug threat from Afghanistan to neighboring countries and the world."

Earlier, some Iranian media outlets reported that Brigadier General Ahmad-Ali Goudarzi, the Iranian border police commander, said that as long as Afghanistan remains poor, unstable, and deprived, the drug threat from this country will continue against Iran.

Brigadier General Ahmad-Ali Goudarzi said: "Combating drugs not only requires trilateral coordination and cooperation between Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran but also depends on international determination to help with the method of production, cultivation, and farming in Afghanistan."

"In every part of Afghanistan where drug cultivation and trade took place, it has been banned, and regional countries must also cooperate in the fight against drugs," said Mohammad Mateen Mohammadkhail, a military analyst.

"Before forces go to a region to eliminate drugs, public awareness should be raised among the people there about the harms of drugs," said Aziz Stanekzai, another analyst.

Earlier, the Deputy Ministry of Drug Control of the Ministry of Interior reported that after the Islamic Emirate took over the country, 1,250 large and small drug processing factories in the country have been destroyed.
