On Thursday the UN warned of the “humanitarian 광주 출장 안마crisis” facing the war on drugs, and called on the international community to take action on the issue with a priority in eradicating prohibition – and to ensure that those responsible for the war on drugs are brought to justice.
The UN chief, Ban Ki-moon, said his agency would hold a global drug summit on 2 June, and called for a “national strategy” to eliminate the use of drug use and violence and to establish “an effective international strategy of drug control and law enforcement”.
The UN’s drug envoy, Pablo Alvarez, told the Guardian: “I do not believe you can solve the problem by one policy but you need to be able to respond to what’s going on with a coordinated, holistic approach. That’s why I urge all countries not to wait for one thing and say ‘we can’t do it’ because they will not.”
The conference, which Alvarez is due to hold later this month, will seek to work on how to “implement and enforce the UN [drug] conventions” but also to devise a national strategy to end drugs, he said.
A d평택출장안마rug treaty would also need a response from international drug users to be introduced, who would be given a number of protections, he said. “It is important for the international community to recognize that the solution to the problem of drugs and criminality is in the hands of individuals and governments. We have to see the effects of the policy in the real world – in society, in families and communities – before we can hope to make a major contribution.”
He admitted, however, that there was “more work to be done before we will be able to give the impression that we can change things. Many countries will still be making decisions based o올인 119n prejudice, myths and ignorance of drugs that will create a huge problem.”
