Iran Votes to Join UNTOC

By John Lee.

The Iranian parliament has voted to join the international body against organized crime, formally known as the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC).

Hossein-Ali Amiri, the vice president for parliamentary affairs, said Iran is increasingly facing transnational organized crimes because of its geographical location.

Tehran Times quotes him as saying;

“Our country is determined to engage and cooperate with other countries in the fight against organized crimes, and its membership in the UN convention will enable Iran to cooperate with other countries in the fight against drug trafficking, human trafficking and other kinds of crimes.”
