Iran, China to combat smuggling of radioactive, nuclear materials

TEHRAN: Iran’s parliament is going to debate a bill that, if passed, will improve cooperation between Tehran and Beijing in various security fields, including fight against smuggling of nuclear and radioactive materials.

The Iranian president has submitted a bill, already passed by the cabinet, to the parliament that will make for the expansion of security cooperation between Iran and China based on a cooperation agreement signed between the two countries in July.

The cooperation agreement covers a broad range of security issues in an effort to enhance stability throughout the region.

Under the deal, Tehran and Beijing will work together closely in fighting organised crime, international terrorist activities, illicit drug trafficking, gun-running, money laundering, human trafficking, cyber crimes and smuggling of nuclear and other radioactive materials.
