Dominican Republic again in US drug trafficking list: EFE

Drugs, latest haul by Antinarcotics

Bogota.- The Dominican Republic again figures among the 22 countries that Donald Trump’s administration identifies as major producers or platforms for drug trafficking, EFE reports.

Trump sent the list of countries, mostly Latin American and Caribbean, to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and also includes Afghanistan, Bahamas, Belize, Myanmar, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Jamaica, Laos, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Panama, Peru and Venezuela.

On his side the Colombian government said today that no one should threaten him in the fight against drugs, in response to warnings made yesterday by US President Donald Trump that he can “decertify” the administration of Juan Manuel Santos for allegedly failing to fulfill its international commitments against drug trafficking.

The list of countries “doesn’t necessarily reflect the anti-drug efforts of their governments or the level of cooperation with the United States,” the report says.
