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.
