Transiting states must put barriers to drugs trafficking from Afghanistan - Merkel
Astana. May 13. KazTAG - Transiting states must put barriers to drug trafficking from Afghanistan, said Iogan Merkel, first deputy prosecutor general.
"The current situation shows that the world community is still unable to solve the problem in Afghanistan. It is absolutely clear. We need deep analysis of drugs situation throughout the transit way, it means we can create real barriers to make the existing route problematic, unprofitable, and achieve its total liquidation," he said at the first interregional seminar "Establishment/strengthening of prosecutors' network and central bodies for mutual legal aid from emerging states, transit and destination running along the main northern drugs trafficking routes from Afghanistan".
In his words, according only to official data the number of revealed drugs trafficking facts in Kazakhstan increased by almost 12% in the past 3 years.
