MANAGUA (Nicaragua), May 30 (Itar-Tass) — Anti-drug trafficking courses for law enforcers open in Nicaragua’s capital on Wednesday and will become Russia’s contribution to the fight against drug trafficking in Central America, the deputy head of the Russian federal drug control service, Oleg Safonov, told Itar-Tass.
“Advanced training for police staff will take place on the basis of Nicaragua’s Police Academy in Managua during a month’s period,” he said adding that the federal drug control service will continue such cooperation with Central American countries.
A group of high skilled trainers arrived in Nicaragua to lecture to local drug control police staff.
“The opening of the courses will be the first step towards expanding cooperation and helping countries of that region to fight drug trafficking,” he said.
At present, drug trafficking is “the most serious problem for Central Asia,” Safonov said. Last year leaders of the region addressed the world community with a request to help them combat drug trafficking.
“Our country responded to this request,” he said.
Last February federal drug control service chief Viktor Ivanov visited Nicaragua and some other countries of the region. Then it was decided that Russia will provide assistance in organizing regional courses for law enforcers.
These are the first courses that the federal drug control service organizes beyond the CIS member-states. It is planned to open a permanent training centre for drug control police in Managua.
During the visit to Nicaragua the Russian delegation held talks with the Nicaragua’s Interior Ministry and National Police.
