Iran threatens to let heroin, opium be trafficked to Europe if West keeps up criticism

    TEHRAN, Iran — Iran threatened Saturday to allow the transit of illegal drugs through its territory to Europe if the West continues to criticize the Islamic nation for its practice of executing drug traffickers.
    Mohammad Javad Larijani, the head of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights, said Iran was sacrificing blood in fighting drug trafficking and suggested it is unfair that it is then condemned by the West for executing smugglers.

    “Westerners have to either be Iran’s partner in the fight against drug traffickers or we must think otherwise and, for instance, allow the transit” of drugs across Iranian territory, Larijani said in a comment posted on the judiciary’s website Saturday.
    He said such a move would reduce the number of overall executions in Iran by 74 per cent, “but the way will be paved for the smuggling of narcotics to Europe.”
    U.N. officials have in the past warned that a “heroin tsunami” could hit Europe if the drug interdiction by Iran is weakened.
    Iran says it has lost more than 3,700 troops in the fight against drug traffickers and 11,000 more have been injured to date since 1979, when the Islamic Revolution brought hard-line clerics to power.
    “Unfortunately, Western countries not only provide no assistance to Iran in the fight against drug trafficking, they condemn us every year for punishing drug smugglers,” Larijani said.
    Iran has also called on Europe to offer financial support to its fight against trafficking.
    Iran lies along a major drug route between Afghanistan — which accounts for more than 90 per cent of the world’s illicit opium and heroin production — and Europe.
    Iranian authorities have taken several steps to stop trafficking, including the building of dikes and trenches along large portions of its roughly 560-mile (900-kilometre) border with Afghanistan. Officials also seize more than three tons of narcotics each day, according to official statistics.

    This is yet another time that the regime of terror is proving that its survival depends on drug, executions, and seeking partners to recognize its terror actions. There was once a taliban leader, after the execution of a lady by shooting her in to the head in public said, "...let us do our executions.... ". The same the regime of terror is showing to insist to do now in its negotiations. If a purpose is nobly to the benefit of people then efforts would be concentrated to avoid smugling of drugs in to Iran, which is known to be entered from Afganistan, to prevent the humble peolpe of Iran to suffer addiction. If they are using the argument of letting the drugs to be traficed to europe shows how involved they have been in letting Iranian youth to be adicted nothing to have done because it suites the regime of terror for hopping to establishing negotiations with EU in order to prove a recognition to its legitimacy.
    Stop negotiating with terrorists in the name of diplomacy. The out come is a continious suppression of People in Iran, encouraging more terror, hostage taking....
    These are alarming signs which lead People to be forced to take the matter in to their bare hands which will end in to massakars we have regreted so many times.

    He said that they wanted to be alone from being critisized of the executions they perform. He said that you let us do our executions acording the "Sharia" and this is all they want. There is a video intervew, which I have not been able to find it.
