    Border Port Commission announced Wednesday that strict measures have been taken to curb drug trafficking, while noting that these measures have made it difficult to smuggle.
    “Due to strict provisions and procedures at border crossings, it is difficult to smuggle drugs," The Commission’s president Omar al-Waeli told The Iraqi News Agency (INA).
    "The quantities seized from travelers by the Commission are small," al-Waeli said, adding that "most of the drugs seized by arrivals in small quantities rather than than those travelling outside Iraq."

    "It is difficult to smuggle through border crossings because there are a lot of measures taken by the ports to prevent smuggling," he said.
