Drug help

PM Hun Sen appealed to donors for help in battling the country's drugs problem at

the nation's first collaborative drug workshop on May 6. He warned that if the country

did not get support to improve its drug control capacity, "then the organized

transnational crimes would shift their activities to Cambodia ... Support for us

is the support for the safety of your children's future". Hun Sen said the country

was committed to a drug-free ASEAN by 2015 and would ratify three international conventions

on drugs by the end of the year.
