No IS Threat to Borders

Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli says the so-called Islamic State (IS) militant group operating in neighboring Iraq poses no security threat to the western borders. In an interview with Russia’s RT TV channel aired on Friday, Rahmani Fazli hailed efforts by the armed forces and the local people to protect the country’s frontiers in the face of IS operations, adding that the terrorist group “doesn’t pose any threat” to Iranian territory, Press TV reported. Elsewhere, he pointed to Iran’s fight against drug trafficking, particularly on its long border with Afghanistan, adding, “We spearhead the war against drugs and criminal groups, spending a lot of financial resources.”  He outlined the security measures adopted by Iran to counter drug smuggling near the Afghan border and said, “We are extremely concerned over the use of money from selling drugs to sponsor extremism.”
