Results against drug trafficking in Colombia are convincing

Bogota, Jul 25 (Prensa Latina) The Colombian Ministry of Defense described the results of the fight against drug trafficking during the first semester of 2023 as convincing.

According to the Ministry, 27 cocaine hydrochloride laboratories worth more than 13 billion dollars were destroyed during this period.

In addition, Army members in conjunction with other agencies destroyed 35 tons of narcotics worth more than one billion dollars.

Likewise, 80 structures to produce coca base pulp, valued at 650 million dollars, were also disintegrated.

More than one million coca seedlings were eliminated, which accounts for some 160 hectares of land that are no longer under cultivation.

In this context, the Colombian Government, in order to define the new National Drug Policy, continues to analyze the proposals from both institutions and the people who live on the territories most affected by drug trafficking. jg/jav/mem/otf
