In Baku, they discuss the problem of drug trafficking
Today, in the capital of Azerbaijan, an international conference to combat drug trafficking has started. As reported by Trend, it was opened by the Department Head to work with law enforcement authorities of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan Fuad Alasgarov. At the beginning of his speech, he delivered the message of President Ilham Aliyev to the conference participants.
In turn, during his speech, Deputy Prime Minister, the Head of the State Commission on Drug Addiction and prevention of illegal drug trafficking Ali Hasanov informed the participants on activities of Azerbaijan in this direction - in the area of improving the legislative framework.
According to Hasanov, in 2010 the country registered 25489 drug users, however, in his opinion, this figure is incorrect. According to Azerbaijani officials, the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh is used for the manufacturing, sale and transit of drugs. This is due to the fact that this area is almost uncontrollable, he said.
