Deputies of the Senate Committee on International Relations, Defense and Security held a round table on the topic «Current issues of legislative support in the field of mobilization preparation, civil and territorial defense».
In his welcoming speech, Committee Chairman Andrei Lukin noted that the topic of the round table is of paramount importance in matters of strengthening the security and defense capability of the state, namely the readiness of government bodies, forces and means, and the entire state defense system to solve defense problems.
«The current legislation makes it possible to solve the assigned tasks, however, it does not fully reflect or disclose the specified measures for preparing and creating appropriate conditions for defense. In addition, the experience and examples of other countries allow us to draw conclusions about the need to further improve the regulatory framework. Moreover, as everyone knows, there is an order from the Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev to the Government and akims of all regions on taking measures to strengthen territorial defense», - said the senator.
During the event, the senators noted that in order to fulfill the tasks of forming and developing a unified management system in the field of mobilization preparation, civil and territorial defense, it is necessary to take not only organizational, technical and administrative measures, but also appropriate legislative support.
In addition, parliamentarians heard reports from Vice Minister of Defense Sultan Kamaletdinov on the topic of organizing planning for mobilization preparation and monitoring the state of mobilization preparation and readiness of troops, Acting Chairman of the Committee on Civil Defense and Military Units of the Ministry of Emergency Situations Alexey Sovetov on legislative support for the field of civil defense, as well as Vice Minister of Health Timur Sultangaziev on problematic issues of implementing functions for the distribution of medicines and medical products of the mobilization reserve.
Summing up the results of the round table, Senator Andrei Lukin emphasized that the proposals voiced during the meeting will be analyzed in detail and worked out with interested government agencies
