Dubai [UAE], July 2 (ANI/WAM): Dubai Customs has assisted Japanese customs authorities in intercepting a significant quantity of illicit drugs. Up to 700 kilogrammes of “methamphetamine” powder, valued at approximately USD310 million, were concealed within a cargo ship originating from an Asian country and bound for Japan.

He highlighted the primary objective of these partnerships, which is to enhance cooperation across various customs sectors, facilitating increased trade volume and addressing security concerns by effectively combatting cross-border crimes.
Musabih underscored Dubai Customs’ significant global role in this domain and highlighted their proactive assistance to numerous countries in intercepting substantial quantities of drugs. This noteworthy contribution not only reinforces Dubai’s global reputation in safeguarding communities from such a grave threat, but also strengthens its position on the global competitiveness indexes.
