Mr. G.Pustovitov, director of the Central Asian Regional Information and Coordination Centre for Combating Illicit Trafficking of Narcotic Drugs, Psychotropic Substances and their Precursors, participated in the Plenary Meeting of the High-level Conference on “International and Regional Cooperation on Countering Terrorism and its Financing through Illicit Drug Trafficking and Organized Crime” on 17 May 2019 in Dushanbe.
The President of the Republic of Tajikistan, Mr. Emomali Rahmon, delivered a welcoming speech to the participants of the high-level event. In his speech, Mr. Rahmon wished success in the work of the conference and stressed that today the entire world community faces global threats to security and it is necessary to make efforts to find new ways to address them.
The session focused on effective responses to transnational organized crime, drug and firearms trafficking, cybercrime and human trafficking.
It was noted that countering contemporary threats to security could only produce real results if joint coordinated actions and systematic measures were taken.
A decision was taken to further strengthen international and regional cooperation, as well as to combine efforts within the framework of anti-terrorist and anti-drug coalitions. In this area, fruitful cooperation has already been established with the United Nations, the Collective Security Treaty Organization, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Anti-Terrorism Structure, the Anti-Terrorism Centre of the Commonwealth of Independent States and individual States.
