COMBATING DRUG TRAFFICKING’ FOR BIMSTEC PARTNER NATIONS
- The geographical proximity to both Golden Crescent and Golden Triangle, major opium production regions of the world, puts all the BIMSTEC Partner Nations in a very precarious position. India’s position is more vulnerable as we are sandwiched between Golden crescent and Golden Triangle.
- The bumper harvests of opium in Afghanistan for the last few years have given rise to increased supply of Heroin in all the BIMSTEC Nations.
- Another major concern for worry is the large number of Methamphetamine manufacturing facilities that are prevalent in some of the BIMSTEC countries.
- These facilities manufacture a large quantity of Methamphetamine which is further trafficked to all the BIMSTEC countries
