Meanwhile, head of the airport and border police also reject the allegation as baseless, as Yqub Rassouli said not only Kam Air Company, but all of those groups aimed at smuggling an illegal object would not be allowed to use the international airfield.
Spokesman for the ministry of transport, Nangyalay Qalatwal also said the issue should be taken to the government related organs, a move reflect its main target to settle similar disputes, if the NATO and US embassies failed to present no proof. 
Accusation of the Kam Air Airline for loading drugs to the neighboring Tajikistan was part of the events aimed at invalidating the country’s air aviation companies, with sometimes both Arianna Airline and Kam Air are being facing cases in the United Arab Emirates and sometimes, while in some cases, they are being blacklisted by different countries. 
The ministry of transport should step up to rehabilitate the prestige of the country’s air aviation.
