    Background: The United States and Mexico signed an agreement on controlling drug and narcotics smuggling on Monday (9 March) in Washington.

    The lengthy negotiation were concluded at a final meeting between the two countries at the Pan American Health Association Building. Mexico's Attorney General Julio Sanchez Vargas headed his country's delegations in the last session. The U.S. delegation was led by Attorney General John Mitchell.

    The agreement calls for both countries to develop greater cooperation in narcotics and drug control, study of smugglers' transport methods, and the establishment of joint training seminars in drug control.

    Although it was not announced, the agreement may formally provide for highway and aircraft checks and the eradication of marijuana crops. These procedures have actually been in effect since the U.S. virtually closed the Mexican border last September.
