Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ During its session on February 9, Thursday, Parliament held the final discussion on and adopted a bill on Internal Troops.

Law of Mongolia on Internal Troops was repealed on January 16, 2014, transferring the duties of internal forces to police.

The bill on Internal Troops was formulated in order to reinstate Mongolian internal troops to their lines of duty which include safeguarding highly-important objects or facilities, dealing with large-scale crowd control when necessary, ensuring safety of civilians, institutions and properties during internal conflict, executing special missions against terrorist activities, and partaking in control of emergency situations involving disaster, natural hazard, accident, wildfire and spread of disease highly contagious among humans and animals.

Parliament thus adopted the bill on Internal Troops which will take effect on September 1, 2017.
