OSCE supports Belarus' resolution on psychoactive substances

Participants of the summer session of the OSCE PA on July 7 continued their work in Minsk. The initiative, put forward by Belarus, draws attention to the need to solve the problem of psychoactive substances by joint efforts.

Over the past two or three years, the number of people who take drugs has doubled. This is confirmed by the UN and OSCE experts.

It's not easy to identify such substances. They quickly appear, but new ones are then created while the nature of older ones is studied.

The resolution of Belarus was supported by a majority vote of the committee.
