Abstract: 
In a potentially watershed development, the Governments of Mexico and the United States have concluded an agreement to cooperate in combatting narcotics trafficking and drug dependency.  The role of the United Nations Fund for Drug Prevention, particularly the U.N. Convention on Illicit Trafficking in Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances and the Comprehensive and Multidisciplinary Plan of Future Activities in the Control of the Improper Use of Drugs, are acknowledged at the beginning of the Agreement.
