MOSCOW, June 16. /ITAR-TASS/. The city of Kazan, the capital of Russia's Republic of Tatarstan in the Volga Federal District, will play host to the Fifth International Meeting of High Representatives for Security Issues on June 18-21, in line with an instruction by Russian President Vladimir Putin, the press service of the Russian Security Council said on Monday.

“The agenda of the forthcoming meeting includes two main items - counteraction to the global drug threat and struggle against the use of illegal migration by transnational criminal groups,” the press service said.
