The UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs held its reconvened 64th session in Vienna on December 9-10.

“An end-of-the-year session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs is usually dedicated to discuss budgetary, management and administrative matters, to summarise an annual work and to agree on new plans for the next session. Nevertheless, representatives of the Member States, non-governmental organisations and intergovernmental organisations take an opportunity to raise the questions on demand and supply reduction,” said Renaldas Čiužas, Head of the Lithuanian Delegation and Director of the Drug, Tobacco and Alcohol Control Department. “Representation of Lithuania and its visibility, is relevant at the international context, especially now when Lithuania begins its four-year term as a member of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs since 1 January 2022.”

In its statement, Lithuania reiterated the importance of the implementation and further development of drug policy, with full respect for human rights, and reaffirmed its commitment to that end. Furthermore, Lithuania emphasized its determination to work openly and respectfully with all stakeholders to ensure a better and dignified life for all. Only through the joint efforts changes can be achieved and a comprehensive and humane drug policy developed.
