LIMA, June 20 (Xinhua) -- Representatives from nearly 70 nations and international organizations are expected to attend an anti-drug conference here next week, a Peruvian official said Wednesday.

The June 25-26 forum, to be hosted by the Peruvian government, will gather delegates from five continents for the first time to analyze strategies to combat drug-trafficking and related organized crime, said Carmen Masias at a press conference.

The conference "will bring together those who are directly involved in anti-drug policies, such as the 'czars', foreign ministers, cabinet members and top government officials," said the director of the Peruvian National Commission for Development and Life Without Drugs.

Peruvian President Ollanta Humala is expected to open the conference, and participants will tackle such issues as how to reduce demand and supply and how to develop alternative tactics in the war on drugs, said Masias.

The forum, said the Peruvian official, is expected to demand that drug-producing and drug-consuming nations accept the principle of shared responsibility as the basis for building anti-drug strategies.
