CAIRO, July 26 (MENA) - Secretary General of the Arab Interior Ministers Council Mohamed Ben Ali Koman has raised the alarm about the problems of illegal drugs, saying such drugs pose a threat to the security and stability of countries and societies.

A statement issued by the media office of the Arab Interior Ministers Council on Wednesday on the occasion of the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, he said drug addiction leads to serious crimes and material and human losses and represents security, economic, social and health challenges, a matter that needs practical steps to confront this bad habit.

He said the spread of drugs prompted many countries to adopt measures to protect youth from illegal drug addiction which also causes moral degeneration and corruption, as well as psychological, social, economic and security problems.

Koman pointed out that the council is keen on cooperation with the Arab ministers of justice, health and social affairs to create a mechanism aiming at confronting drug abuse.
