The Security Council met on Wednesday to discuss combating drug trafficking in West Africa and the Sahel.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the Council that around the world, drug trafficking and transnational organized crime threaten security, undermine respect for the rule of law and jeopardizes peace and stability.
