In their declaration, the leaders expressed their full support for the holding of the "International Conference of Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Heads of Specialized National Agencies on the Global Drug Problem," which will be held in Lima, Peru, on June 25-26, 2012.
The leaders also recognized the Hemispheric Drug Strategy and the Hemispheric Plan of Action on Drugs, 2011-2015, of the OAS Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission, as a source of reference for joint action in the region for effectively countering the global drug problem.
Likewise, the document specifies that the heads of State and Government who signed the Declaration commit to making every effort to participate in the meeting in order to advance the objectives agreed upon by the international community to tackle the world drug problem.
