IRGC to Help War on Smuggling

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, which has been assigned the task of tackling commodity smuggling in the Persian Gulf, will support the administration in the broader war on smuggling, the IRGC spokesperson said.
In comments on Saturday, General Ramezan Sharif said Iran’s Supreme National Security Council has assigned the IRGC the job of combating the smuggling of commodities in the Persian Gulf, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“One of the paths for the entrance of contraband into the country is the sea borders,” the general noted, saying that the IRGC’s extensive and active presence along the southern borders would be of great help in anti-smuggling efforts.
As soon as the Office of the Chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces determines the details and mechanism of the campaign against contraband in the Persian Gulf, the IRGC Naval Force will formulate its plans, he added.
In comments on the first day of the Iranian year in March 2017, Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei called for efforts to combat smuggling and contraband goods as part of plans to stimulate domestic production and combat unemployment.
