BEIJING, July 17 (Xinhua) -- State Councilor Zhao Kezhi, also chief of the National Narcotics Control Commission, on Wednesday called for efforts to step up the crackdown on drug-related crimes and push forward the battle against drugs.

Zhao told a teleconference that anti-drug authorities should resolutely curb the infiltration of drugs from abroad, strengthen international law enforcement cooperation, and prevent the spread of new types of drugs.

It is necessary to be fully informed about the situation of drug users, strengthen the work of reception, treatment and rehabilitation of drug addicts, and eliminate the risks of drug use to the maximum extent, he noted.
