Statement by Indonesia

Indonesia is not only a key transit country but also a destination for drug use. We have 7 million drug users. We have a crisis in amphetamine and ecstasy use. We experience challenges in security and the well being of the Indonesian population. After successes in dismantling ATS labs, we have realised that trafficking was on the rise.

Indonesia must work closely with other countries to solve this problem. We have signed MoUs with other countries to do so. Trafficking in remote ports remain a concern because of the large number of islands forming Indonesia. We are also experiencing new modes of trafficking through mailing and parcel delivery.

Illicit drugs come outside of Indonesia, except for cannabis. We work together with special institutions where we use satellite monitoring of cultivation of cannabis.

We would like to work closely with other delegations and would like to continue working on the fight against illicit drug trafficking.
