The fight against illegal drugs trafficking was discussed Tuesday during a working visit to Chile and Bolivia by the head of Russia's Federal Narcotics Control Agency
The fight against illegal drugs trafficking was discussed Tuesday during a working visit to Chile and Bolivia by the head of Russia's Federal Narcotics Control Agency, Viktor Cherkesov. Previous intergovernmental agreements had been concluded with both Latin American nations on cooperation in the fight against the illegal drugs trade. In Chile, talks were held with the executive secretary of the National Council Against Narcotics Trafficking, the general director of the Carabinieri Corps, and other heads of Chilean agencies responsible for antinarcotics efforts. During the meetings, the sides exchanged organizational experiences of their work and discussed interagency cooperation. Chile's experience in the fight against narcotics trafficking is seen as especially relevant, inasmuch as that country has been able to avoid widespread drug addiction despite its proximity to the region's main cocaine producers, Bolivia, Peru and Colombia. In Bolivia, talks were held with the heads of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Religion, during which bilateral interagency cooperation, the establishment of a legislative basis necessary for its implementation, and issues concerning cooperation within the framework of international organizations such as the UN and the OAS were discussed. The Russian delegation visited a special military police training base in the province of Chapare, where it familiarized itself with the Bolivian experience in combating the production and trafficking of cocaine. Previously, a memorandum of understanding had been signed April 21, 2004, by the Russian antinarcotics service and the vice-minister for social security of the Bolivian Internal Affairs Ministry, which is responsible for the fight against drug trafficking in that country.
