While welcoming the official official, Gen. Marwa thanked Saudi authorities for their past support.

He said considering the need for an enduring partnership, “we propose a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation between the two agencies in combating trafficking in narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances, and its precursors to GDNC for consideration and signing just like we recently did with the Drug Law Enforcement Agency in the Gambia”.
