The provisions of the agreement enshrine the right of citizens of either party and persons residing in its territory to free access to justice and equal rights and obligations with citizens and persons residing in the territory of the other party in a proceeding in the territory of the other party, the right to exemption from legal fees, the right of citizens of one party to receive free legal assistance on the same terms and to the same extent as nationals and persons residing in the territory of the other party. These provisions shall also apply to legal entities formed in accordance with the laws of either party.
