Today, deputies of the DPR People's Council adopted in two readings the draft law "On Ratification of the Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance Treaty between the DPR and the Republic of South Ossetia". The document was supported by 80 parliamentarians present at the meeting.
Before voting, attendees were introduced the provisions of the bill by Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Natalia Nikonorova.
"Ratification on part of the DPR will allow us to fulfill international obligations and comply with the norms of our legislation. After ratification, the treaty will acquire the force of the law of the Republic, and the norms set forth in it will be implemented in the legal system. The new status of the treaty will allow the state authorities to regulate in more detail the legal relations between our states in the relevant areas and to carry out interdepartmental cooperation," Nikonorova noted.
She added that the RSO in its turn ratified the friendship treaty signed with the Donetsk People's Republic on October 31.
It is noted that the adopted law will be sent to the Head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko and will come into force after its publication on the official website of the parliament.
We recall that on May 11, 2017, an agreement on friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance between the DPR and the Republic of South Ossetia was concluded. It is called upon to raise relations between states to a qualitatively new official level.
