EU drugs agency steps up cooperation with Armenia

July 29, 2015

The EU and Armenia will cooperate more actively on monitoring the drug phenomenon, thanks to a Memorandum of Understanding signed in Yerevan between the EU drugs agency (EMCDDA) and the National Security Council of Armenia (NSC).


Today’s accord – signed for an initial period of five years – will be implemented through a joint work programme to be updated every three years, which will include steps to enhance the partners’ monitoring and knowledge base on the drug situation and responses to it. 


Special attention will be given to the regular exchange of information on the appearance on the drug market and use of new psychotropic substances, as well as the technologies employed in their production. 


The agreement provides for an exchange of technical expertise and knowledge between the two bodies, the co-sponsoring of technical meetings and the pooling of human and financial resources to launch joint programmes. (EU Neighbourhood Info)
