US CLAIMS BOLIVIA AND VENEZUELA ALLOW DRUG TRAFFICKING TO FLOURISH

[3/3/17]  Once again Bolivia and Venezuela, along with Burma, are the countries where there is a “demonstrable failure” in their obligations to fight drug trafficking.

A US report on drug trafficking reveals that the administrations of Evo Morales and Nicolás Maduro have allowed drug trafficking to flourish within their territory.

The report, for 2016, is based on recommendations issued by former US President Barack Obama last September when he designated Bolivia, Venezuela, and Burma as responsible for a failed policy in the fight against drugs in the previous 12 months.

According to the document issued by the Obama administration, neither Venezuela nor Bolivia met their commitments against trafficking and drug production in the last year. Venezuela was included in that list in 2007, and Bolivia in 2008.

Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Peru, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and Belize are among the largest producers and transit countries in the world.
