Putin’s Victory: US Does Not Oppose Iran’s Participation in Syrian Talks Any More


MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Iran perceives the United States as a country that supports terrorism and drug trafficking, Iranian Justice Minister Mostafa Pourmohammadi said Thursday.

"I want to say that we perceive the United States as country supporting terrorism and spread of narcotic substances," Pourmohammadi said at the meeting with the deputy speaker of the Russian parliament upper chamber, Ilyas Umakhanov.

According to the Iranian minister, since US forces were deployed in Afghanistan in 2001, the volume of drug production saw a 10-fold increase.

"Today, financial support and supply of weapons [to terror groups] are carried out either by the United States or by its allies," he added.

In late October, Iran’s Deputy Defense Minister Brig. Gen. Nasrallah Kalantari said that the United States and its allies provided conditions for breeding terrorism in the Middle East.

After all "Death to America!" is a favorite Iranian slogan, as we all know. But it's okay. Sanctions work. :D

The US army and government? Probably not. The CIA? Maybe, considering their own history.

The resurgence of the drug trade in the region was not because the US was directly involved in it, rather it was because of the indirect results of the US invasion of Afghanistan. The war gave drug traders and warlords plenty of free space and time to restart their operations, so the increase was inevitable.
