A meeting was held at CARICC on 23 April 2024 with Nate Rettenmayer and Brian Gillespie, Heads of Section of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL) at the US Embassies in Tashkent and Dushanbe.

Welcoming the guests of the Centre, CARICC Director A. Yazlyyev informed about activities of the Centre, which coordinated a number of counternarcotics operations, including international controlled deliveries. This resulted in the seizure of a significant amount of drugs and precursors, arrest of scores of leaders and active members of organized criminal groups.

A separate description was given of CARICC's information and analytical efforts in preparing regular information reports and bulletins on combating drug trafficking, conducting research on various aspects of the drug problem, and organizing and conducting training courses and workshops for representatives of law enforcement agencies of Central Asian countries. 

The US INL Delegation highly appreciated CARICC activity as a regional information and analytical center. A hope was expressed for strengthening this regional coordination mechanism, including with financial assistance of CARICC Member States and its donors.
