VIENNA: The UAE has reiterated its sustained support to the ongoing international efforts to fight and eradicate drugs to protect the health and safety of human beings from this scourge, which represents a global concern and requires greater co-operation to address it.

Before the 60th session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) in Vienna, the UAE stressed that it has achieved positive results in the fight against drugs at the national level, given the reduction in the number of drug addicts over the past years, the same levels were maintained during 2016 when seizures and confiscation operations rose by 25 percent over the previous year.

The audience discussed the latest developments in this field, and the latest narcotic substances and their effects.

They also discussed ways to criminalise these substances globally, within the agendas of the international conventions on drugs. They also reviewed global experiences and studied the draft resolutions, which member states desire to adopt.
