Afghanistan Chief Executive Officer, (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah warned that if selling drugs not prevent in the country, the combat against eliminating this phenomenon will be failed.

CEO says that no measures have been taken regarding this issue and selling drug is free in the city.

“We instructed the ministry of interior to take serious measures in fight against this dangerous phenomenon,” said CEO, Abdullah Abdullah.

He believes that a fund box must be created for the rehabilitation of drug addicts and Afghans financially support for better treatments of drug addicts.

Meanwhile, minister of counter-narcotics says that all of the people should fight against this phenomenon and for the success the mobilization of Afghans is a serious need.

In 2015 the Afghan opium cultivation has once again hit a record high, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s 2015 Afghan Opium Survey.

Afghanistan accounts for around 90% of global illicit opium production in recent years. By itself, Afghanistan provides 85% of the estimated global heroin and morphine supply, a near monopoly.

In 2014, the Afghan Ministry of Counter Narcotics reported that just 7,300 hectares of poppy fields had been destroyed, which was only three percent of the total opium fields in the country.
