Agreement Of Friendship Cooperation And Mutual Assistance

The Soviet Union had similar agreements with many nations that were not directly allied with it, but were heavily dependent on Soviet support, such as North Korea since 1961, with India since 1971 and Vietnam since 1978. However, the first such agreement dates back to 1943 with Free France. Due to the uncertain status of Finnish-Soviet relations in the years following the War of Recognition and the exact interpretation of the treaty text, Finland followed the decision of the Warsaw Pact countries and did not participate in the Marshall Plan. As a result, Finland`s post-war period extended to other European capitalist countries, becoming much more economically dependent on the Soviet Union. In general, Finland has officially maintained its relations with Western military powers (including the Scandinavian Defence Union proposal) and NATO in particular. By avoiding support for the West, it tried to fend off Soviet pressure on membership of the Warsaw Pact. There have never been any joint military exercises and other military cooperation has been minimal despite the occasional progress of the Soviet Union. As part of the pact, Finland was forced to resist armed attacks by “Germany or its allies” (actually interpreted as the United States and allies) against Finland or against the Soviet Union by Finland. If so, Finland should apply for Soviet military assistance. However, the pact itself did not provide for any provision for the entry of the Soviet army into Finland and provided that all such actions should be decided separately if Finland decided to seek help. Moreover, the pact did not provide for emergency measures for Finland if the Soviet Union was attacked (if the attack did not take place by Finland).

The agreement also recognized Finland`s desire to stay out of high-power conflicts, which allowed it to adopt a policy of neutrality during the Cold War. The High Contracting Parties, which reaffirm their determination to unite to embark on the path of reducing the armed forces and weapons, including nuclear weapons, will promote the disarmament process and interact in perfect harmony in the area of the reduction of armed forces and weapons. , in view of the commitment made by the Republic of Kazakhstan to accede to the Non-Proliferation Treaty of 1 July 1968 as a non-nuclear-weapon State party. Prior to the conclusion of the nuclear weapon from the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the parties will cooperate to ensure the safe operation of the weapon. Based on the desire to establish intergovernmental relations on the basis of mutual understanding, justice, equality and non-interference in domestic affairs, high-level parties interact in every way possible to ensure a reliable common defence in the general strategic space, on the basis of the approved provisions of military doctrines and the principle of defence capability.
