State releases international narcotics control strategy
Last week the State Department submitted the 2016 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR) to Congress. The two-volume report offers a comprehensive assessment of the efforts of foreign governments to reduce illicit narcotics production, trafficking and use, in keeping with their international obligations under UN treaties, while also presenting information on governments’ efforts to counter money laundering and terrorist financing.
Volume I of the INCSR, the Drugs and Chemical Control section, covers the efforts of more than 80 countries and jurisdictions to attack all aspects of the international drug trade in 2015. Volume II, Money-Laundering and Financial Crimes, describes the efforts of major money laundering countries to implement stronger anti-money laundering and counterterrorist financing regimes.
This is the 30th anniversary of the INCSR.
