MOSCOW, June 7 (Itar-Tass) - Russia calls for strengthening international cooperation to resist the growing drug threat coming from neighboring Afghanistan.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday met Yuri Fedotov, the U.N. deputy secretary general and executive director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) to discuss Russia’s interaction with the United Nations in anti-crime activities aimed against drug trafficking. Other topics included prospects for development of joint anti-corruption projects and international cooperation in fighting cyber crimes, the Russian Foreign Ministry reports.
Lavrov and Fedotov stressed the need to build up international cooperation to resist the drug threat coming from Afghanistan given that foreign military contingents were planning to start withdrawal from that country in 2014.
Special attention will be paid to preserving and raising the efficiency of existing international laws in the field of drug enforcement.
