YEREVAN, December 24. /ARKA/. A center against drug addiction and drug trafficking will be founded in Armenia in 2014, in the framework of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), secretary of Armenia’s National Security Council Artur Baghdasaryan said at a regular meeting of inter-agency anti-drug commission Tuesday.
Armenia will become the first country having such center, Baghdasaryan said as quoted by the press office of the Security Council.
The center will have state-of-the-art equipment and laboratories and will be functioning as part of Armenia’s police, he said.
Baghdasaryan noted all the required agreements are made and documents are signed.
According to the secretary of the Security Council, the center will become an important tool for public agencies to fight against drug trafficking efficiently as number of chemical drugs is growing today and Armenia does not have any modern laboratory to respond.
At its meeting the commission approved the draft strategy of Armenia against drug addiction and drug trafficking in the country. The strategy is then submitted for approval of the National Security Council. –0—
