ABSTRACT
This article calls on the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to provide more help to Afghanistan. Helping Afghanistan has importance for the OSCE in that several of its member states border it and many more have sent troops to help support the internationally recognized Afghan government. The primary problem facing OSCE members which border Afghanistan is the porous borders between them making it easy for organized crime groups, such as those engaged in narcotics smuggling, conduct their business without harassment.
