ISLAMABAD, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Federal Service For Control of Drugs (FSKN) has developed economic proposals for Afghanistan expected to ensure a decline in drugs production in Afghanistan, FSKN Chief Viktor Ivanov declared at a meeting of the Central Asian Anti- Drug quartet (Russia, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan) on Thursday.
"I would like to draw attention to the problem of comprehensive development of the social economic activity in Afghanistan, using the mechanisms of alternative development, as a key direction towards the liquidation of drugs production in Afghanistan", the FSKN chief said.
"We assumed a very skeptical attitude towards the predicted prospects for the withdrawal of the NATO forces from that region in the near future. In any case, curtailing military presence of the United States and its NATO allies in Afghanistan will trigger the question of peaceful construction in Afghanistan in the post- war period; therefore, our states must suggest a number of programs on the economic development of Afghanistan and make a program of the alternative development of Afghanistan and the Central Asian region an absolute priority in the system of anti-drugs measures," Ivanov said.
"Russia has already developed these proposals in the framework of the Russo- Afghan intergovernmental commission," Ivanov said.
"The most important direction in the anti-drugs diplomacy of our states should be a similar program and an initiative suggested to the UN, SCO, G-8 and other leading international organizations on the establishment of a Global Alliance and a corresponding foundation for the alternative economic development of Afghanistan," Viktor Ivanov said.
