The United States and Kyrgyzstan have had "excellent" anti-drug cooperation, a visiting U.S. official said Monday.

"I think Kygyzstan and the United States have had an excellent cooperation on anti-drug," said William R. Brownfield, U.S. assistant secretary of state for international narcotics and law enforcement affairs.

"We are also proud of our cooperation on border security and other issues," the U.S offical told a press conference.

Kyrgyzstan has Afghanistan, the biggest heroin producer to its south and the increasingly rampant smuggling of Afghan drugs via Kyrgyzstan to the north over the past five years, Brownfield noted.

"I am afraid that Kygyzstan is changing from a drug transitional country to a drug consumer region," he said.

The drug problem poses a threat to all communities in Central Asia. "The U.S. welcomed cooperation with any country and any organization on the anti-drug issue," he said.

Kyrgyzstan is part of Brownfield's Central Asian tour. He will meet representatives of Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Russia "to promote multiple approach in the fight against illegal drug trafficking," said sources with the U.S. Embassy.
