TEHRAN, Jan. 11 (MNA) – Iranian police have seized 880 kilograms of narcotics in Asalouyeh city located in the Bushehr Province of Iran.

One smuggler has been detained in this regard, he further noted.

The narcotics pack has been hidden in the heavy-duty truck, he said.

Iran is at the forefront of the fight against drug trafficking and thousands of Iranian forces have been so far martyred to protect the world from the danger of drugs.

Despite high economic and human costs, the Islamic Republic has been actively fighting drug trafficking over the past decades.

Iran has spent more than $700 million on sealing its borders and preventing the transit of narcotics destined for European, Arab, and Central Asian countries.
