Egypt addresses the HLM

The delegate of Egypt addressed the High Level Segment of the CND speaking of challenges faced by his country, not least: the continued illicit cultivation of cannabis and opium plants which takes place in rugged terrain and which leads to increased chances of resistance of drug enforcement authorities; that the region is used to smuggle narcotic drugs, especially hashish, because of its geographical position; the diversion of chemicals and licit drugs to illicit drugs; and the drop in international support to countries facing increasing drug problems.
The delegate particularly called upon the INCB to take necessary measures to reduce the use of tramadol internationally and to increase efforts to curb demand at the same time as supply. He expressed hopes for a general debate.
