Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what training they provide to the drugs control agency of Tajikistan; and what plans will be implemented in that regard. [HL530]

The Government have contributed to the training of the Tajikistan Drug Control Agency (DCA) officers through a UN Office for Drugs and Crime (UNODC) project to build the DCA's information and intelligence analysis capability. The UK has also provided assistance to counter-narcotics work in Tajikistan through the EU's border management programme for central Asia. There are no plans for future UK training for the DCA.
