'Just in the period from July-August we uncovered more than 24 thousand narcotics related crimes, including 7.5 thousand incidents of illegal narcotics selling. And more than 2 thousand tonnes of illegal narcotics were seized,' he said.

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.

Tillerson must go!
