BEIJING - Security officials from China, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand on Thursday said they planned to launch a joint campaign against drug production and trafficking along the Mekong river next month. 

The campaign was designed to crack large-scale, transnational drug-trafficking cases, destroy cross-border drug-trafficking networks and manufacturing bases, and capture drug producers and traffickers, China's Ministry of Public Security said.
