Securing borders against illicit materials and goods

Border control

Across the globe, insecure borders enable the trafficking of drugs, weapons, contraband, terrorist funding, materials related to weapons of mass destruction, conflict minerals, wildlife and people.

Some Ambassadors brought up the problems their countries face due to lawlessness, while all agreed that more needed to be done to secure borders.
