BELARUS HAS MORE RATIFIED AGREEMENTS THAN ANY OTHER CIS MEMBER
A number of CIS members are behind the schedule in ratification procedures, and 2005 did not result in much progress. Only Moldova and Ukraine managed to catch up with the schedule, however, they did not ratify a single agreement since mid-2005.
Vadim Popov also noted that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus needed not only to prepare CIS agreements for ratification, but also to take stock of ineffective documents. Russia withdrew from as many as 12 inefficient agreements last year. Belarus considers withdrawing from four deals.
According to the commission, the inventory of international agreements will improve the regulatory framework within the Commonwealth of Independent States.
