Police Chief: Enemy Seeking to Inspire Iranians with Insecurity
TEHRAN (FNA)- Enemies are trying to portray Iran as an insecure country in a bid to discourage foreign nationals from visiting Iran, a senior Iranian police chief said on Wednesday.
Head of the Prevention Department of Iran's Law Enforcement Police General Bahram Norouzi said that enemies are also endeavoring to inspire Iranian expatriates with the same feeling of insecurity in Iran.
Norouzi stressed comprehensive security in Iran, and said, "Police forces are ready to provide services for all fellow countrymen at the country's entrance and exit points."
The commander also strongly rejected some false western reports alleging that passports of some Iranian nationals are taken away from them at the country's airports, and pointed out that similar to all other states only the passports of those individuals are confiscated that are banned from leaving the country in due to judicial decrees or arrest warrants.
He further underlined the important role of the media in defusing enemies' plots and their psychological war and propaganda against Iran.
