Cuba anti-drug strategy based on counteraction and prevention
Published on May 17, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- Cuba's Justice Minister Maria Esther Reus said in Guatemala that her country's anti-drug strategy combines prevention and counteractions, which has yielded positive results since 1988.

"Cuba's anti-drug fight is different from those implemented in many Latin American nations; we have achieved positive results by combining counteractions and prevention,” said Reus during the first ministerial meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) on the issue, held in Guatemala.

The struggle against drugs includes all Cuban society and mass organizations said the minister who noted that each member with the regional bloc has its own characteristics, and that Cuba calls for respect to unity among diversity in all issues, including drugs.

Cuba is willing to collaborate and offer its experience in the fight on drugs, said Reus, who stressed that the issue is of universal nature, while these kinds of meetings help socialize different alternatives already implemented in regional nations.

The gathering was attended by 18 ministers and officials from all 33 members of the Community, who debated the drug problem, currently affecting not only this area but the whole world.
