TEHRAN – Iranian anti-narcotics police chief Mohammad Massoud Zahedian and his Turkish counterpart Ibrahim Hakki Seydioglullari have agreed to promote cooperation in the campaign against illicit drugs.

Meeting in Ankara, the two officials exchanged views about a range of issues, including ways to boost Tehran-Ankara relations, Tasnim reported on Wednesday.

Zahedian and Seydioglullari also talked about different aspects in production of narcotics and drugs precursors in Afghanistan and ways to fight money laundering.

Iran, which has a 900-kilometer border with Afghanistan, has been used as the main conduit for smuggling Afghan drugs to narcotics kingpins in Europe.
