Because of the challenge in the administration of the international drug control system, it is necessary to establish a greater level shared responsibility. This should be guiding principal.

The group also believes the world-wide nature of drug issues must shape national efforts. Financial resources must be strengthened without conditions being made and a more effective approach will involve mutually reinforcing the supply and demand control issues.
