Russia: International conference to combat illicit drugs, held in Moscow

Russia's Federal Drug Control Service hosted the Moscow Anti-Drugs Ministerial Conference on how to suppress the control, supply and distribution of narcotics, in the Russian capital, Thursday.

The focus of the meeting was the vast scale of production and trafficking particularly in Afghanistan and South America. Special attention was also drawn to the necessity for all countries to unite in developing comprehensive rehabilitation programmes for drug users.

Among the participants were representatives of law enforcement from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Brazil, India, Iran, China, as well as a number of international organisations, including International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) and the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO).

The head of Russia's Federal Drug Control Service said global centres of illegal drug production must be the focus of the international community.
