Amman, Mar. 15 (Petra) — The Jordan Anti-Drugs Society on Wednesday participated in the 66th session of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs, in the Austrian capital, Vienna.
The session, held from March 13 to 17, is one of the UN’s most prominent gatherings to combat the illegal trafficking of narcotic substances and discuss global drug control system issues.
On the session’s sidelines, the Society, in cooperation with Jordan’s Ambassador to Austria Haitham Abu Alfoul, held its annual event on the strategies and impact of manufactured illegal drugs on youth and women, with the participation of the U.S. government, the World Federation Against Drugs (WFAD), the Turkish Green Crescent Society, and Iceland’s Planet Youth.
The Society’s President Mousa Altarifi stressed the need to fight manufactured illegal drugs, which became an international concern that must be fought by putting clear and strict strategies in place.
President of the WFAD Amy Ronshausen underscored the need for global efforts to come up with effective strategies that keep pace with the rapidly-developing manufactured drugs.
