News, August 2 2012
Kyrgyzstan will ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) in 2012. The member of the interdepartmental working group, Mirbek Asangariyev, reports.
According to him, a package of measures to implement the document based on the Strategy for Population Social Protection for 2012-2014 is being developed at present. “The working group members recommend the Government of Kyrgyzstan to start the procedure of ratification in September 2012. All agencies must make an inventory of regulatory legal acts. Ratification will allow persons with disabilities fulfilling their potential in full. Respecting the rights of persons with disabilities will contribute to building a law-based state,” Mirbek Asangariyev notes.
