MOSCOW, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service (FSNK) is surprised at the US decision to suspend anti-drug cooperation.
“The US continues anti-drug cooperation and makes investments in Iran’s anti-drug programmes although sanctions have been imposed on Iran due to its nuclear programme,” the FSNK director Viktor Ivanov said.
“By Washington’s logic, the FSNK and its director are more dangerous than Iran’s nuclear programme. This makes us suspicious they are hypocritical towards Russia,” he said.
“We’re surprised at US politicians’ decision to link anti-drug cooperation with disagreements over the Ukrainian crisis,” Ivanov said.
Russian and US drug policemen have destroyed dozens of laboratories and tonnes of heroin due to be transported to Russia, Europe and the US, he said.
“Now the US authorities are telling their drug policemen ‘It's enough’. In essence, they’ve given a command to classify data regarding Afghanistan’s drug laboratories. Who will benefit from this? Drug cartels in Afghanistan and South America,” Ivanov said.
