MOSCOW, June 6 (Itar-Tass) - The BRICS countries will fight drug trafficking jointly, head of the Russian Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN) Viktor Ivanov told journalists on Thursday.
A document, which will reflect the countries’ position on this issue, will be signed by the heads of the anti-drug services in September, Ivanov said.
He stressed that the heads of the BRICS anti-drug services had gathered in Moscow within the 30th International Drug Enforcement Conference. “For the first time this issue fell within the BRICS competence. We’re working out the base of our work,” Ivanov said.
An agreement has been reached to create an expert group, he said.
“Experts have been instructed to work out consolidated proposals till August in order to sign the document,” the FSKN head said.
He noted that the final document would be signed by the heads of the anti-drug services at the BRICS summit in September.
