MOSCOW, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. US Drug Enforcement Administration has received no instruction to curtail cooperation with Russia’s drug police so far, says head of the Russian Federal Drug Control Service.
“My partners from the US Drug Enforcement Administration have received no special instructions so far, that’s why they take a wait-and-see stance,” Viktor Ivanov said on Tuesday.
He called a decision to include him on the United States’ sanctions list “strange.”
“This is a strange decision. Our cooperation was targeted at liquidating drug laboratories in Afghanistan’s northern provinces and large batches of drugs,” Ivanov said. “I will be unable to visit the US, but anyway we are ready for cooperation."
