Azerbaijan, Baku / Тrend corr S. Agayeva / The Iranian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Nasir Hamidi Zare denies Iran supplies drugs to Azerbaijan.
Azerbaijani law-enforcement bodies are with increasing frequency reporting about a drug threat proceeding from Iran.
"Every day Iran officially detains and gives out to Azerbaijan about 100 Azerbaijanis accused of drug trafficking and drug addiction," the Ambassador said to journalists on 20 November when commenting on the reports.
According to the Ambassador, Iranian law-enforcement bodies are seriously fighting against drag trafficking to Iran from Afghanistan and Middle Asia. That is why Azerbaijan and other countries in the region do not feel the problem as it is.
