Tehran, Iran, Feb. 28 – The United States and Britain are illegally smuggling arms into the Islamic Republic via its western neighbour Iraq in a bid to destabilise the Islamic Republic, Iran’s police chief said on Tuesday.

“100 percent of all illegal arms, alcohol, and unethical items enter onto Iranian soil via Iraq”, Brigadier General Ismaeil Ahmadi-Moqaddam told reporters.

“The entry of illegal weapons into the country is a completely organised enterprise by the big powers based in Iraq”, Ahmadi-Moqaddam said.

The general, a former senior commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, is hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s brother-in-law. He said the Iraqi government had promised the Iranian authorities to curb the arms smuggling, but their pledge “could not be relied upon”.

“With the backing of the occupation forces in Iraq, plans have been set up through which illegal arms are brought in to disrupt internal security”, the State Security Forces commander said.
