ISLAMABAD, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - Pakistan is interested in anti-drug and military technical cooperation with Russia, director of Russian Drug Control Service Viktor Ivanov told Itar-Tass after his meeting with Pakistani President Manmoon Hussain on Thursday.
According to Ivanov, the Pakistani president pays great attention to the problem of drug production. “We discussed a number of issues of cooperation, not only among police services, by the way,” he said. “We discussed political efforts needed to solve the problem of drug production in Afghanistan. It is obvious that this problem cannot be solved by police methods only.” Afghan heroin is sold in Russia, in Europe and in Central Asian countries, he noted.
“In my opinion, Pakistan is absolutely open for work with us and is very interested in it,” the Russian anti-drug chief noted. “The president said he hoped for closer cooperation with Russia not only in the anti-drug sphere, but also in the areas of economic and military technical cooperation,” Ivanov said.
