Azerbaijan, Baku, 11 November / Trend corr. A.Hakimi/ Afghanistan's Minister for Counter Narcotics General Khodaidad was called to the country's Parliament to deliver a report on the activities of the Office over last year.
The Ministry does not enjoy powers in this field. The plans on combating drugs and the pursued policy are in the hand of coalition forces, he said.
The Parliamentary Commission for Counter Narcotics said the work to prevent proliferation of drugs in the country had been ineffective.
According to the UN Security Council's report, Afghanistan produces 92% of heroin and 93% of opium.
In 2007, Afghanistan produced 8,200,000 tons of opium.
In September, Khodaidad said to Trend that the opium sown area reduced by 19% and drugs production by 11%.
