Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad JavadZarif criticized Western countries for their failure to effectively fight against global narcotics trafficking. “West’s failure to prevent drug trafficking is a major problem. The fight against drug smuggling should not be politicized”, Zarif said Monday in a meeting with United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Executive Director YuryFedotov in Tehran. Voicing the Islamic Republic’s readiness to increase its cooperation with the UNODC in the global fight against illicit drugs, the Iranian minister said Iran is paying a high price for its contribution to the battle against narcotics and other countries should take on more responsibility and equally pay the price for the sake of security.Iran is on a major transit route for drugs being smuggled from Afghanistan to Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
