TEHRAN: Iran is constructing a long fence along its borders with Pakistan as part of a broader strategy to block entry of drug-traffickers and terrorists into the country, Fars News Agency (FNA) reported.

Iran's Defence Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said his country is rapidly constructing a fence on its border with Pakistan.

"Barrier and road construction along the border [with Pakistan] is being carried out in impenetrable mountainous terrain [in southeastern Iran] with precision and quality," said the defence minister.

Strategies include digging canals, building barriers and installing barbed wire to seal borders of Iran.

Iran is on a crossroad of international drug transit route linking Afghanistan to Gulf and European countries.
