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.
