Islamabad, January 03, 2021 (PPI-OT): Minister for Narcotics Control, Brig (Retd) Ijaz Ahmad Shah has called for joint effort by Pakistan and Iran to curb narcotics smuggling. In an interview, he said no single country can achieve one hundred percent result in the subject of narcotics control until and unless there is coordination between the states.

The Minister said Pakistan and Iran are neighbours and if we don’t have any coordination in the field of narcotics control we cannot be successful. Brig (Retd) Ijaz Shah said he is looking forward a cooperative gesture from Iranian side during the upcoming visit of the Head of Iran’s Anti-Narcotics Police, Brigadier General Majid Karimi and his delegation to Pakistan tomorrow.
