NEED FOR ANTI-NARCOTIGS FORCE IN THE WESTERN HEMI-

SPHERE.—It is the sense of Congress that— (1) the operations of international illegal drug smuggling organizations pose a direct threat to the national security of the member nations of the Oi^anization of American States; (2) illegal international drug smuggling organizations have grown so large and powerful that they threaten to overwhelm small nations standing alone against them; (3) to preserve the national sovereignty, protect the public health, and maintain domestic law and order within their borders, member nations of the Organization of American States should coordinate their efforts to fight the i l l ^ a l drug trade; (4) recent events in drug source and transit countries in the Western Hemisphere make clear the requirement for international agreement on the formation of a multinational force to conduct operations against these i l l ^ a l drug smuggling organizations; (5) the United States should make every effort to initiate diplomatic discussions through the Organization of American States aimed at achieving agreement to establish and operate a Western Hemisphere anti-narcotics force; and (6) sensitive to the legitimate concerns of other member nations of the Organization of American States, the United States stands ready to provide equipment, training, and financial resources to support the establishment and operation of such an anti-narcotics force, but believes that the personnel for such a force should be provided by those nations facing the most serious threat from drug trafficking organizations.
