A proposal covering drug eradication strategy for 2015 was set to be endorsed at a meeting between the Justice Ministry and 27 related organisations of Thailand on October 8.

Once approved, the plan would be assigned to responsible units for immediate implementation.

According to Justice Minister General Paiboon Koomchaya, the plan has both short and long term steps, and the urgent one will be executed during the last quarter of this year.

The strategy consists of six goals, including reducing the number of illegal drugs imported across the border, preventing drug sales, discouraging new users, curing drug addicts, monitoring any illegal activities along the northern border, and integrating the prevention and suppression efforts with relevant agencies at all levels.-VNA
