Pakistan and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) reaffirmed their resolve to work together quickly and effectively to eliminate the threat posed by the narcotics trade.
According to the 24News HD TV channel, the decision was made at a meeting between the director general of narcotics control for Saudi Arabia, Major General Mohammad-bin-Saeed Al-Qami, and the director general of customs intelligence, Faiz Ahmad Chadhar.
The meeting covered issues of shared concern, such as the illegal trade in narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances, and chemical precursors between the two countries.
In order to halt the flow of illicit funds and drugs between Pakistan and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, both officials agreed to exchange intelligence-based information.
"Customs Intelligence with a concentrated approach has expanded countrywide counter-smuggling drive with a specific focus on narcotics smuggling," Faiz Ahmad Chadhar informed the delegation.
The Saudi delegation applauded Faiz Ahmad's team's recent seizure of a high-quality "Hashish" in Quetta.
