ASTANA, September 10 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev has called on his CIS counterparts to create an anti-drug security belt around Afghanistan.
“My proposal is dictated by a simple circumstance that the strongest threat of drugs trafficking is emanating from Afghanistan,” he told a news conference after a meeting of the CIS Interior Ministers Council in Kazakhstan on Tuesday.
“Therefore we should make consolidated extraordinary efforts to block this threat that knows neither nationalities nor boundaries,” Kolokoltsev said. “Together with our CIS counterparts we should take all possible measures envisaged by the international law to minimize the drug threat.”
