The Protocol signed in Chelyabinsk on 9 November 2017, provides for the return by the Russian Federation of leased land plots with a total area of ​​11.6 thousand hectares to the Republic of Kazakhstan.

According to Aidarbek Saparov, First Deputy Minister of Agriculture, who submitted the document, 4 land plots are being withdrawn from the lease.

“The returned land will be redistributed for the construction of the Western Europe – Western China international transit corridor, the Almaty – Moscow railway, for the linear part of the Beineu – Shymkent gas pipeline and the development of the Toretam village of the Karmakshynsky district of Kyzylorda region,” he noted.

Also at the meeting, the Treaty between Kazakhstan and Mongolia on the transfer of convicted persons was ratified.

The agreement is aimed at strengthening legal cooperation in criminal legal relations between Kazakhstan and Mongolia.

According to the Agreement, with the written consent of the convicted person and if, at the time of receipt of the transfer request, the sentence imposed on the convicted person has entered into legal force and the period of time to be served by the convicted person is at least one year, the convicted person may be transferred for further serving a sentence of imprisonment in his homeland.

Speaking at the meeting, Senator Andrey Lukin stressed that the presence of such international legal instruments would certainly facilitate the further fate of the compatriots convicted outside Kazakhstan, since their detention in correctional institutions of a foreign country impedes their communication with relatives, and also has a language barrier .

According to available information, five citizens of Mongolia are serving their sentences in Kazakhstan. There are no citizens of Kazakhstan serving sentences in Mongolia.

Kazakhstan has concluded similar agreements with 21 countries of the world, in particular with Ukraine, China, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, etc.
