“The draft law on imposing a moratorium on uranium mining in Kyrgyzstan is initially clear and short to avoid some interpretations and loopholes,” MP Kanat Kerezbekov said at public hearings on May 7.
According to him, this decision was made in order to avoid future extension of licenses for prospecting and exploration of uranium
The document on imposing the moratorium on extraction of uranium fully complies with the legislation of the country, including the Constitution, the Civil Code and the law on subsoil.
“There should be no interpretations. Everything is clear and understandable. And Kyrgyzstan has the sovereign right to impose the moratorium. There are such precedents,” Kanat Kerezbekov said. (24.kg/Ukrainian metal)
