The Russian and Kazakh drug agencies have signed a protocol
The Russian and Kazakh drug agencies have signed a protocol to strengthen joint efforts in combating drug trafficking on the border between the two countries, the Russian Federal Drug Control Service said on Tuesday.

Narcotics trafficking is an acute problem for Central Asian countries due to the flow of illegal drugs from neighboring Afghanistan, the world's largest opium and heroin producer. The drugs are then smuggled via Russia's Urals region onto Western Europe.

Russia and Kazakhstan are both members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, which also comprises Armenia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.

The members of the CSTO held a successful anti-drug operation between November 17 and 24, during which a total of 18 metric tons of drugs were seized.

Russia's law enforcement and security services seized over 29 metric tons of drugs in January-September and detected 198,000 drug-related crimes.
