Dominican Republic again on the U.S. narcotics transit list

The Barack Obama Administration today sent to Congress its annual report on the manner in which more than 125 countries cooperate with the United States in the war on drugs, with Dominican Republic again figuring among the nations which “allow” their transit.

Called the Report of the International Strategy for the Control of Narcotics, the document gives Congress a tool to evaluate the aid planned for the various countries next year. It classifies the countries which are the main producers of illegal drug, those which serve as a pipeline for the contraband and those which are the suppliers of the major chemical components used to make illegal narcotics.

The report elaborated by the State Department also describes the conditions in the major countries where "money laundering" is carried out, obtained from the smuggling of illegal drugs.

In the document prepared in September last year Obama notified Congress that the Administration had listed Afghanistan, the Bahamas, Bolivia, Burma, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Jamaica, Laos, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Panama, Peru and Venezuela, as the major countries which produce drugs or allow its transit.
