Guyana minister meets with US, Britain and Canada to explore cooperation in fight against drug trafficking
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (GINA) -- The trafficking of narcotics and other illegal drugs is not unique to Guyana but rather is a hemispheric problem that has to be addressed through a collaborative approach with other countries.
Against this backdrop, Minister of Home Affairs, Clement Rohee, on Tuesday met with representatives of the United States, United Kingdom and Canada.
A similar meeting was convened approximately two years ago, when they engaged in talks of bilateral cooperation in a number of areas, particularly drug- trafficking, money laundering, and other related crimes.
Rohee said that, with this second meeting, they are seeking once again to explore ties of cooperation in the fight against narco-trafficking and added that “from Guyana’s point of view are looking for positive outcomes.”
In the past, engagements with the countries concerned have resulted in assistance in areas such as training, capacity to detect and trace firearms, detect drugs in containers, money laundering investigations and demand reduction strategies.
