Statement on the World’s Anti-Drugs Day 26 June 2011 Restoration Council of the Shan State (RCSS), with

the policy of anti-narcotic drugs, has been involved in the process of narcotic drugs eradication for over 11 years now. To welcome the World’s Anti-Drugs Day that falls on 26 June 2011, RCSS has implemented its anti-narcotic drugs policy and the eradication of drugs at different places in 2010-2011. For example : On 28 February 2011,Shan State Army raided and seized a drug refinery run by Militia Unit of the Burmese Army at Lai Kha village, Wan Zit tract in Nam Zarn township of the Shan State. In the four hours-fighting, many heroin, the chemical liquid, many assorted weapons and ammunitions have been seized from the Militia Unit. Because of the bad administration of the Burmese regime, people in the ethnic areas suffer from the economic crisis and grow more poppies. The local Burmese army covertly collects taxes from the growing of poppies, the production and the trading of opium and thus the trading of narcotic drugs in Thailand, in Laos and in China increases more. The people and younger ethnic generation also use more narcotic drugs at different levels. This is the reason why RCSS is deeply concerned about the problem of narcotic drugs that occurs in the ethnic areas in the Union of Burma and in neighboring countries. In order to stop the danger of narcotic drugs spreading from the Golden Triangle to other countries, RCSS requests and welcomes the international anti-narcotic drugs organizations to investigate the root causes of the narcotic drug problem and eradicate the narcotic drugs. In addition, RCSS obviously offers to cooperate with these organizations in the narcotic drugs eradication process at all times. To be able to cooperate with the international anti-narcotic drugs organizations in the process of narcotic drugs eradication in the ethnic areas, RCSS requests that the Burmese Army does not use forces in dealing with the ethnic groups as the present and to solve the political problems of the country through political means.
