KABUL, Dec. 14 (Xinhuanet) -- The government of Afghanistan in its war on drugs has destroyed over 180 heroin labs and 200 tons of narcotics in the past year, Deputy Interior Minister on narcotics Mohammad Daud said Wednesday.
"Personnel of Counter-Narcotics Force have discovered and destroyed 181 heroin labs and 200 tons of illicit drugs across the country over the past one year," Daud told journalists at a pressconference here.
During the year 649 persons have been arrested on charge of drug smuggling while over 400 cases have been investigated, he added. His remarks came amid concerns at the United Nations circles that the poppy cultivation would further grow next year. Daud rejected the concerns as groundless, saying the Afghan government is committed to eliminating poppy cultivation in the country.

But areas where military operations are underway -- such as Marjah in Helmand province -- would not be targeted until the rebels had been pushed out and development programmes launched, said deputy interior minister Mohammad Daud Daud.
Eradication had begun in other parts of Helmand, scene of a major assault against militants who for years controlled Marjah along with drug traffickers, Daud told reporters.
Programmes had also begun in Nangarhar and Farah provinces, and would soon be launched in Kandahar, another militant hotspot and centre of poppy production, he said.
Daud said 25 of Afghanistan's 34 provinces were free of poppy cultivation by last year.
But he said the eradication programme would take place in 18 provinces as "minor planting" had been reported in some.
Daud said the campaign was in three stages -- public awareness, prevention of cultivation and, finally, eradication, with farmers offered help in planting alternative crops, including cereals.
