The Era of the Revolutionary Council Government
(1962-1974)

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.
