MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. Russian Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev expressed concern on Friday over intentions to legalize certain kinds of drugs in some countries.
"We consider such position inadmissible and proceed from the necessity of strict compliance with provisions of three basic anti-drug conventions of the United Nations," the minister said at a ministerial meeting of law enforcement agencies from China and countries from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
The Russian minister drew attention to the fact that drug trade was nourishing terrorist activity, and closer attention should be paid to ways to curb it.
Kolokoltsev said it was also necessary to counter the circulation of new psychotropic substances that damage as much and sometimes even heavier than ‘traditional’ drugs.
"We believe it would be important to join our effort through joint operations and an exchange of experience in that sphere," the Russian minister added.
