Bolivia repudiates US report on coca cultivation and production

The Government of Bolivia rejected on Tuesday the annual estimates of the White House on the cultivation and production of coca, issued by the Office of National Policy on Drug Control.

The report from Washington indicates that Bolivia's coca cultivation in 2017 exceeds the established limit (9,000 hectares) by the Bolivian government for the religious and cultural use of the plant, so they ask for "real efforts" to eradicate it. For its part, Bolivia, through a statement , said it has fulfilled its international responsibility with results recognized by multilateral organizations such as the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
