The southern province of Tay Ninh, with five districts bordering Cambodia, has intensified the fight against cross-border drug trafficking.

Tay Ninh shares a border line of 240 kilometres with Cambodia on which there sit two international and 14 auxiliary border gates.

Since the beginning of 2014, the provincial Border Guard Command has launched operations against drug smugglers, while strengthening the capacity of border guard and police forces.

The local border guard has coordinated with other local forces and the Cambodian side in sharing information and experience and boosting communication campaigns in order to effectively prevent the crime.

So far this year, local authorised forces have uncovered 67 drug cases involving 236 suspects, collecting 9.8 kg of heroin and nearly 16 grammes of synthetic drugs.-VNA
