MOSCOW, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Head of Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service has stressed the need for helping Afghanistan’s comprehensive development within the upcoming ten years to make the fight with drug trafficking effective.

“To implement this ideology or doctrine on security through development, we need to organize Afghanistan’s comprehensive development in the period from 2015 to 2025 on the basis of alternative development programs of new generation, including accelerated industrialization and construction of basic infrastructures,” Viktor Ivanov told a meeting of the expert community on Tuesday in the run-up to a ministerial meeting of heads of anti-drug agencies.

“This approach seems the only productive way to resolve the priority task by the world community - to eliminate the global scale drug producing center “in the heart of Asia,” he said.

“For this purpose, Russia considers it necessary to develop and offer to the world a new generation of Afghanistan’s alternative development programs that in practice will help liquidate this global center of drug production and source of destabilization for the whole Eurasian region,” Ivanov added.
