VIENNA (VNS)— Deputy Minister of Public Security, Senior Lieutenant General Le Quy Vuong, has warned that the production and sale of amphetamine substances is becoming more sophisticated.
Speaking at the week-long 57th session of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs, which opened in the Austrian capital Vienna on March 13, Vuong called on the international community to better support countries confronted with the issue.
He said the Vietnamese Government had adopted an active, comprehensive and balanced approach to fighting drug abuse, focusing on preventive acts and awareness campaigns to appeal for public involvement.
Established in 1946, the commission is part of the UN Economic and Social Council. — VNS
