MOSCOW, September 30. /TASS/. Russia’s drug control service FSKN has identified a major international crime ring delivering synthetic drugs from Southeast Asia to nearly 50 countries around the world, FSKN chief Viktor Ivanov said on Wednesday.

"We have obtained information about a transnational crime syndicate bringing synthetic drugs from Southeast Asia to dozens of countries. Our operatives have exposed the trafficking of synthetic drugs to 47 states," he said.

The FSKN chief invited counterparts in other countries to pool efforts in the struggle against this major organized crime ring.

"My proposal is for establishing international cooperation. Everybody is invited to join the existing Russia-China-Spain coordination center. We hope for constructive work that would make it possible to bring to justice all members of this criminal group. We have suggested calling a conference to consider joint action," he said adding that in its first step the FSKN was sharing with other countries the list of drug dealers it had managed to expose.

"You have the lists. The FSKN will be prepared to share with you more information at its disposal," Ivanov said.
