Tajik-Afghan frontier: drugs traffic rampant

More than nine tonnes of smuggled drugs have been confiscated along the Tajik-Afghan frontier since the year's start, Amirkul Azimov, Tajikistan's national Security Council Secretary, announced to the media.

Mr. Azimov chairs the Secretarial Committee of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation, which brings together Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan.

It is hard to evaluate current developments in the south reaches of the Commonwealth of Independent States, CIS-the situation depends too closely on how things are going in Afghanistan. That is especially true of Tajik frontier areas. The situation is normal, more or less, and only drugs present formidable problems for now, he said.
