Korea has recently been used as a transhipment route for drugs and precursors. Greater attention is needed to oppose this new trend. We have focused on preventing drugs from entering the territory. It is essential to establish and maintain close collaborative cooperation to curb trafficking. Korea has controlled smuggling attempts through exchange of information with 18 countries. We have successfully broken attempts to smuggle drugs via our territory. We reiterate the essential role of regional and international cooperation to counter drug trafficking. Be assured that we will support this process of cooperation.
