G7 Leaders adopt anti-drug declaration

Available at G7 Leaders adopt anti-drug declaration | G7 Italia (


At the initiative of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, the G7 Heads of State and Government adopted a joint declaration to fight the production, distribution and sale of illicit drugs.

The G7 Leaders have committed to leading international efforts to dismantle drug trafficking (particularly synthetic drugs with devastating effects such as fentanyl), seize the illicit proceeds deriving from drug dealing and prevent drug addiction, especially among young people.

The G7 also encouraged all nations concerned by the threat posed by illicit drugs to take action against suppliers of the chemical precursors used to produce these illegal substances.

The adoption of this declaration confirms the strong attention of Prime Minister Meloni, also as current President of the G7, towards a topic – drug-trafficking – which has a profound social impact in Italy and in many other Nations of the world. The declaration follows the adoption two months ago in Italy of a national plan against the illicit use of fentanyl.
