Members of the lower house of the Parliament approved amendments to the draft law on international treaties of Kazakhstan. According to them, they are intended to improve the current document. It was also drafted with a view to bringing it in line with the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties adopted on May 23, 1969 and to eliminate gaps and conflicts. In addition, the document revised a number of definitions of certain legislative concepts.

“In particular, it is recommended to define the concept of ‘argument’ and to formulate it. This is because the text of an international treaty becomes authentic and final through a procedure for determining the equivalent authenticity of the text of an international treaty. The draft law proposes to expand the definition of ‘authority’ in order to implement the possibility of sending a certificate of authority through diplomatic channels. Secondly, the bill eliminates the legal gap in the need to adopt a provision on approving the text of the draft international treaty signed by the President of Kazakhstan,” said Aigul Kuspan, Member of Mazhilis.
