Joe Biden backs US $381 million commitment to tackle crime in Central America

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Washington remains committed to helping Central America tackle organized crime and soaring drug violence, US Vice-President Joe Biden has said.

While Biden made no mention of decriminalizing drugs, as proposed by Guatemala recently, Central American leaders say they plan to debate the issue further.

Biden said the US had supported Central America under a regional security initiative with some $361 million since 2008.
