In connection with the accession of the Principality of New Atlantis to the countries, signed the Framework Convention on Climate Change, adopted in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, which, in practice, is establishment of indirect bilateral relations with 195 countries from all over the world, which have already signed this convention
At the end of 2016 a group of independent, sovereign – newly-founded states, one of which is the Principality of New Atlantis, united themselves and established their regional economic organization named “Alliance for free economic integration and sustainable development of newly-founded states”
I clarify, that, under the international rules, according to this Convention, an organization, such as the Alliance may be party to the Framework Convention on Climate Change adopted in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, may sign the Convention and accede to it on the 90-th day after the deposit of the documents to the Secretary-General of the United Nations in his capacity of a Depositary.
From the attached documents, it is clear that the Alliance, which, as I said, is one of the founding members of the Alliance, on 01.03.2017 has sent by fax to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, the documents for accession to the UN Convention on Climate Change. In addition, the same documents have been sent by courier – with a return receipt. They were sent a third time by email to the Secretary-General and a fourth time – by e-mail to the Department of Ecology of the United Nations, from where we have a return letter that they had been received.
Given that, under Article 23 of the UN Convention, the accession regime is informative, then, after the 90-th day from the date of deposit of the documents, we are party to the UN Convention on Climate Change. This day is 31.05.2017.
In practice, from 31.05.2017 The Principality of New Atlantis has established an indirect bilateral relations with 195 which have already signed and joined this convention, including the European Union and including the Republic of Bulgaria.
CONGRATULATIONS for the successful diplomatic move of the Alliance’s leadership and, above all, for the combativity and supremacy of the Foreign Minister of the Principality of New Atlantis – Mr. Jordan Balanov, who is also one of the General Secretaries of the newly established Alliance.
