Anti-drug agency pro­posed for SCO

China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

China will push for the es­tab­lish­ment of an anti-drug agency within the Shang­hai Co­op­er­a­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion to bet­ter fight cross-bor­der traf­fick­ing, a se­nior anti-nar­cotics of­fi­cial with the Min­istry of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity said. The agency is ex­pected to co­or­di­nate the anti-drug co­op­er­a­tion ef­forts among SCO mem­bers, such as in in­tel­li­gence shar­ing, case in­ves­ti­ga­tion, joint law en­force­ment op­er­a­tions and per­son­nel train­ing, said Wei Xiao­jun, deputy di­rec­tor of the min­istry’s Nar­cotics Con­trol Bureau. China will also seek closer co­op­er­a­tion with other SCO mem­bers to more pre­cisely tar­get transna­tional drug traf­fick­ing routes and un­der­ground drug fac­to­ries, as well as to cut their cap­i­tal chains, he said.
