Over half ton of drugs destroyed in Turkmenistan
Drugs seized in a series of special operations by law enforcement agencies of Turkmenistan were destroyed in a special ceremony held in the village of Kasamly Dzhulge, not far from the Turkmen capital, on June 26. It was organized by the Government of Turkmenistan, the State Service to Combat Drugs, and the State Coordination Commission on Drug Abuse under the Cabinet of Ministers of Turkmenistan.

As the Turkmenistan.ru correspondent reports from Ashgabat, there were destroyed 674,132.89 kg of drugs in special furnaces in the presence of law enforcement agencies of Turkmenistan, diplomatic missions accredited Ashgabat, NGOs, members of the National Movement Galkynysh, and the media.

According to the official report, this amount is much less than in previous similar events in Kasamly Dzhulge, which is "evidence of the success in combating illicit trafficking and drug smuggling, and demonstration of the effectiveness of the Turkmen state and its law enforcement agencies to combat this evil."
