Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) Kirsten D. Madison will travel to London, United Kingdom, July 9-12. Discussions will focus on coordinated efforts to combat transnational criminal threats, particularly illicit synthetic drugs like fentanyl, the deadly opioid driving America’s drug crisis and spreading globally. She will meet with the Home Office, National Crime Agency, Metropolitan Police, Royal Foundation, Border Force, Public Health England, and other government agencies.

The United Kingdom is a steadfast U.S. partner in combating shared narcotics threats and is one of the 130 UN member states that joined the Global Call to Action on the World Drug Problem launched in 2018 by President Trump. As part of the Administration’s engagement in Europe, the United States supports the region’s fight against transnational crime, including the illicit trade in synthetic drugs, and looks forward to furthering this partnership.
