VP highlights the danger of ‘narco-terrorism’
Vice President Boediono has called on all people to make necessary preparations to prevent the latest lethal mixture between drug cartels and terrorist groups, or what he has highlighted as the danger of “narco-terrorism”.
“Narco-terrorism is a dangerous mix between criminal and political motives,” Boediono said during the opening of the 29th annual International Drug Enforcement Conference (IDEC) in Nusa Dua, Bali, on Tuesday, as quoted by tempo.co.
He acknowledged that the conference thus played significant roles in this particular field.
“I greatly expect that the conference will produce firm measures and strategic cooperation on how to deal with this new form of crime,” he said.
The IDEC is scheduled to run until Thursday. There are an estimated 305 participants coming from 73 countries, including Indonesian drug enforcement authorities. (png/dic)
