Plenary Day 2: Statement from Iran

The concerning data on drug and precursor production in Afghanistan raises questions as to the reasons behind the persistence of high production levels. For example, the effectiveness of the alternative livelihood programmes for farmers should be questioned.

In Iran, the drug control programme continues to focus on interdiction supply of illicit drugs, particularly opium, heroin and crystal methamphetamine. Iran has also made efforts to strengthen regional cooperation, especially triangular cooperation with Pakistan and Afghanistan. Iran also welcomes training programmes on harm reduction.

We make the following proposal to enforce the global fight on drugs: necessity of a strengthened approach in Afghanistan focussed on social and economic aspects and destroying laboratories producing precursor chemicals.

    Hello,
    I’m contacting you regarding the UN’s upcoming CND 2012 meetings. As a concerned citizen I was worried to hear that France supports and funds Iran’s campaign against drugs, which was found by Amnesty to fund Death Penalties in general and political human rights violations specifically
    [See full report here – “Addicted to Death”].
    488 Alleged drug offenders were officialy executed in Iran in 2011, the actual number is reported by Amnesty to be closer to 3,000.
    I encourage you to see the full infomation and reconsider France’s unquestioning support of these murders.
    Please look into the matter.
