'Gov't has a clear, transparent anti-drug trafficking policy'
Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich has ratified the government’s position that Argentina "is not a drug-producing country" and called the society here to “get involved in the prevention of addictions.”
Saying that the battle against illicit drug trade must not hit news headlines when other issues lose public attention – he referred to the ups and downs of the foreign exchange market now that the so called “blue” dollar in the formal market seems to have stabilized following the government’s decision to ease controls over the purchase of the US currency back in January-, the head of ministers defended the “clear, transparent and deep” policy carried out by the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration to face drug-trafficking-related problems.
In his daily brief to the press at the government house, Capitanich called Argentineans “to get involved in the prevention of addictions” considering that “the responsibility is not only of the state but of the whole society."
