Iran can monitor eastern borders with radar

TEHRAN, May 24 (MNA) -- Iran is capable of monitoring its eastern borders through radar systems, National Police Chief Esmaeil Ahmadi-Moqaddam said on Sunday.

The eastern borders with Afghanistan and Pakistan can be monitored from Tehran through several networks of radars that have been constructed along the borders, Ahmadi-Moqaddam told reporters following the second meeting of ‘Electronic City’ conference.

 

The police also plan to use this system for the other national borders, he added.

 

Ahmadi-Mogaddam said on Wednesday that Iran will establish complete control over its eastern borders with Afghanistan and Pakistan by March 2010.

 

Over the past three years, Iran has spent about $800 million to secure its eastern borders through the construction of concrete walls to a length of 80 kilometers, digging trenches with parapets on both sides to a length of 460 kilometers, deploying over 100,000 border guards, establishing an anti-drug police force, and setting up 160 border posts, he explained.
