Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan have reportedly conducted their first joint anti-narcotics operation this week along the three nations’ mutual borders. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime said that the operation resulted in a seizure and the arrests of traffickers.
UN agency chief Antonio Maria Costa lauded the operation as “a very important political message” to drug traffickers across the region.
The presidents of the three nations met today in Tehran to discuss regional issues. They agreed that their foreign ministers would meet every month, and the three presidents would get together quarterly.
