The report concluded that the law project has enough conditions to be submitted to the Standing Committee of the National Assembly and the National Assembly for consideration during the law-making program in 2023.
At the meeting, the delegates agreed that it was necessary to develop such a law, but still proposed to clarify a number of provisions.
