DUSHANBE, August 12. /TASS/. The United States has handed over to Tajikistan tactical equipment worth over $1 million to fight drug trafficking, the US embassy in the Central Asian republic’s capital Dushanbe said on Wednesday.
The aid has been given to Tajikistan free of charge as part of a program on fighting drugs implemented by the US Central Command, said Maj. Anthony Garbauskas, who heads the program.
The transfer of equipment confirms Washington’s interest in the joint work with Tajikistan’s government on combating drug trafficking in the region, Garbauskas stressed.
The head of Tajikistan’s Drug Control Agency, Rustam Nazarzoda, told a news conference last month that Russia remains one of the country’s key sponsors in the fight against drug trafficking and a reliable partner on countering Afghanistan’s drug threat.
Under an agreement with Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service, Tajikistan’s agency is due to receive $5.7 million in aid in the next three years. Since the beginning of the year, the republic’s law enforcers have seized over 4 tons of drugs.
