After the formation of a new system and regulation, we have relaunched the system once again. With the permission of the cabinet granted on the 29th, we have relaunched the dual citizenship system. The cabinet had granted permission to grant these dual citizenship to applicants expeditiously if the applicant has met the requirements under the supervision of an the committee. Therefore, we have taken necessary measures to grant dual citizenship to applicants expeditiously.[/quote]
