“Iraq is insecure, but we have had the necessary predictions for confronting the possible threats, although we don’t think that anyone (the ISIL) dares to approach Iran’s Western borders given our control over the region,” Rezayee said in no uncertain words.
Elsewhere, he elaborated on the security measures adopted at the Eastern borders of Iran, and said, “This year, we have discovered 26 tons of drugs at the country’s Eastern borders, which shows an increase compared with the past.” Most of the drugs are coming in from US occupied Afghanistan. Afghanistan has been the greatest illicit opium producer in the entire world, ahead of Burma (Myanmar), the “Golden Triangle“, and Latin America since 1992, excluding the year 2001. Afghanistan is the main producer of opium in the “Golden Crescent“.
Opium production in Afghanistan has been on the rise since U.S. occupation started in 2001. In addition to opiates, Afghanistan is also the largest producer of cannabis (mostly as hashish) in the world.
According to EU agencies, Afghanistan has been Europe’s main heroin supplier for more than 10 years.
Heroin enters Europe primarily by two major land routes: the long-standing ‘Balkan route’ through Turkey; and, since the mid-1990s, the ‘northern route’, which leaves northern Afghanistan through Central Asia and on to Russia (and is sometimes colloquially referred to as the ‘silk route’).
Estimated number of problem opioids users in EU: 1.5 million (1.3–1.7 million), average prevalence between 4 and 5 cases per 1,000 adult population (aged 15–64). In 2005 there were around 7,000 acute drug deaths, with opioids being found in around 70% of them (source: Wikipedia).
There was a minimum of 49,000 seizures resulting in the interception of an estimated 19.4 tonnes of heroin. Countries reporting the largest number of seizures (descending order): UK (2005), Spain, Germany, Greece, France. Countries reporting the largest quantities of heroin seized in 2005 (descending order): Turkey, UK, Italy, France, the Netherlands.
In Iran it has been particularly difficult. In large part due to the inaction on the part of the United States Military which allows poppy production to go on unabated in Afghanistan despite the hundreds of thousands of people being adversely affected by its policy of allowing this to occur.

Presently with the resurgence of high output production of opium and heroin in post-Taliban Afghanistan, there is an ongoing heroin addiction epidemic in Russia which is claiming 30,000 lives each year, mostly among young people. There were two and half million heroin addicts in Russia by 2009. Needless to say Russia is pissed off as well at the inaction and policies of the United States in Afghanistan.
