The Era of the Revolutionary Council Government

During this era, Myanmar and the United Nations first started cooperation in combating narcotic drugs, due to the latter's offer of assistance in Myanmar's anti-narcotics activities which were effectively carried out through adoption of projects. Therefore Myanmar acceded to the 1961 single Convention on Narcotic Drugs on 29 July 1963 with a view to cooperating with the United Nations in the prevention and suppression of narcotic drugs.
