October 15, Fineko/abc.az. For about 30 years, Armenia, in collusion with Iran, has used the former occupied territories of Azerbaijan to carry out drug trafficking to Europe, ABC.AZ reports citing Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev as saying this at today’s meeting of the CIS Council of Heads of State in the format of a videoconference.

"Over the past year, after Azerbaijan regained control over the 130-km section of the state border with Iran, which had been under Armenian control for about 30 years, and thereby blocked the drug trafficking route from Iran through Jabrayil district of Azerbaijan to Armenia and further to Europe, the volume of heroin we detained on other sections of the Azerbaijani-Iranian border has doubled compared with the same period of previous years.

This suggests that for about 30 years Armenia, in collusion with Iran, used the former occupied territories of Azerbaijan to carry out drug trafficking to Europe.
