New version of Law on Int'l Agreement submittedPolitics
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Minister of Foreign Affairs L.Purevsuren presented a draft new wording for the law on international agreements to R.Gonchigdorj, one of the Vice Speakers of parliament, on October 14.
The currently effective law on international agreements was adopted in 1993, was amended in 1998 and 2012. Due to the indeterminate scope of the law effect, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been handling the monitoring over the translations of sales agreement, which are supposed to be regulated under international corporate law, and of other international agreements. Moreover, the process of joining an international agreement takes place in two procedures, namely signing by an associated cabinet member and ratification by parliament, because the law does not reflect all regulations of Vienna Convention on the Law on Treaties. The law is also deficient in regulations on publishing the international agreements and treaties. Consequently, the court is often not able to use the international agreement of treaty articles.
The new wording of this law has eight chapters and 37 articles, all free of the above and other problems.
