After the greeting message of Mr Liang Yun, Police Brig-Gen Win Naing said that the meeting on drug control cooperation was virtually held due to COVID-19 pandemic.
He also discussed the effective cooperation work with the neighbouring countries, regional countries, world countries and international organizations in conducting the drug control measures and important plan to crackdown the increasing precursor chemical trade. He then said it is difficult for the country to control the entry and exit points on the long border areas although there are no technical or industries to produce precursor chemicals.
He also highlighted the moves of drug smugglers by taking advantage of some organizations at border areas, illegal precursor chemicals trade via border areas, high demand of illegal drugs in international countries and special anti-drug operations depending on the situation of drug trade and routes. He then urged the participants to accelerate the operations along the borders of two countries.
The meeting also discussed the decisions of 17th bilateral meeting, cooperation work to arrest the fugitives, further cooperation, preventive measures for illegal precursor chemicals and matters related to the 18th bilateral meeting.—MNA (Translated by Khine Thazin Han)
