The aim of the meeting was to discuss issues of co-operation in fighting drugs and the exchange of information on drug traffickers and drug supply routes in the region.
This Joint Meeting was organised by the Transnational Threat Department's Strategic Police Matters Unit, the EU-funded project “Heroin Route II – Information Networks along the Heroin Route” and the Central Asian Regional Information and Coordination Centre for combating the illicit trafficking of narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances and their precursors (CARICC).
The two-day event brought together senior and middle management representatives of national law enforcement and drug control agencies from Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan to discuss the issues of co-operation in fighting drugs and to exchange information on drug traffickers and routes of drug supply.
The participants shared their experience and exchange their views on mechanisms and tools for enhancing cross-border co-operation by strengthening the information exchange mechanisms. The discussions were focused on the practical implications of co-operation between law enforcement, improving ways and means of the information exchange and the planning of further joint activities in a holistic manner.
