DUSHANBE, November 12 (Itar-Tass) - Amid a drug threat looming around the globe, Tajikistan consistently comes out in favor of a security belt around Afghanistan, an anti-drug coalition as well as a single concept for more efficient fight against the spread of drugs, the head of the Tajik Drug Control Agency, Rustam Nazarov, told a session the NATO Political and Partnership Committee on Tuesday.
“In his speech, Rustam Nazarov, drew partners’ attention to efforts and initiatives of Tajik leadership in fight against illegal drug trafficking,” sources from the Drug Control Agency’s public relations centre told Tass.
They said he had voiced earlier initiatives of Tajikistan, “such as to create a security belt around Afghanistan, to form an anti-drug coalition and to pass a single concept of the anti-drug coalition,” they added.
Nazarov also told the session that the total amount of drugs confiscated by Tajik law enforcement agencies this year stood at 5.7 tons with heroin accounting for every tenth kilogram.
He also marked the efficiency of growing cooperation on anti-drug fight with partners from Russia, Central Asia as well as law enforcement agencies of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
