Iran offers Pakistan
Iran offers Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) officials for conducting joint operations with Anti-Narcotics Police (ANP) of Iran to help stop the movement of illicit drugs.
Shehryar Afridi welcomed the Iranian Ambassador and his offer.
He said that illicit drugs remain a common challenge for Pakistan.
However, he vowed that Iran, the world and Pakistan would keep fighting this war to save humanity from the menace of drugs.
Minister noted decades-old ties between Iran and Pakistan based on brotherhood and friendship and also as part of Muslim Ummah.
He said that under the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Pakistan would keep working for uniting the Muslim Ummah.
He said Muslims should stand together to foil the conspiracies because the enemy wants to provoke Muslims against each other.
Afridi called it unfortunate that among world refugees, 97 percent are Muslims.
He said that even today our younger generation stands confused due to the conspiracy against Muslims. We need to work together to forge unity among our ranks.
Ambassador Hosseini termed narcotics a menace and we have to prove our contribution to the world through best practices.
He said that Iran welcomes the initiatives of Prime Minister Imran Khan for regional peace and would fully support his initiatives.
He offered Pakistan joint training programs for Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) officials with sniffing dogs for conducting joint operations with Anti-Narcotics Police (ANP) of Iran to help stop movement of illicit drugs.
Hosseini also stressed the need for resumption of direct flights between Islamabad and Tehran as it would help improve bilateral relations.
He said that Iran had direct flights to capitals of all Muslim countries, but there is no direct flight between Tehran and Islamabad.
Shehryar Afridi said that Pakistan would take all necessary measures to ensure the expansion of relations with Iran.
