TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – The common borders between Iran and Iraq are among the world’s safest frontiers, commander of the Iranian Border Police said.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a visit to the Chazzabeh border crossing in southwest of Iran, Brigadier General Qassem Rezaei said the common border of Iran and Iraq are among the safest borders in the world.
