The Special Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations Devoted to Countering the World Drug Problem Together (commonly referred to as the World Drug Summit) was held in New York on 8th‐10th June, 1998. Many presidents, prime ministers and heads of state attended the sessions. Several meetings of representatives of non‐governmental organisations and activists dealing with special subjects preceded, or were held simultaneously with; the sessions. The World Drug Summit adopted a political declaration; a declaration on the guiding principles of drug demand reduction; and measures in relation to five specific areas to enhance international cooperation to counter the world drug problem.
