T.I.A.S., agreement on military exchanges and visits between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of Mongolia, agreement of June 26, 1996. The United States is a party to multilateral and bilateral agreements that deal with the status of U.S. forces while they are in a foreign country. These agreements, commonly referred to as the “status of Forces Agreements,” generally create the framework within which U.S. military personnel operate in a foreign country.1 The United States provides rights and privileges for insured persons while in foreign jurisdiction and deals with how domestic foreign jurisdiction laws are applied in the United States.2 SOFS may contain many provisions. but the most common question is which country can exercise criminal jurisdiction over U.S. personnel. The United States has agreements in which it retains the exclusive jurisdiction of its staff, but the agreement more often requires joint jurisdiction with the host country. The political issue of SOFA is complicated by the fact that many host countries have mixed feelings about foreign bases on their soil and that SOFA renegotiation requests are often linked to calls for a total withdrawal of foreign troops. Issues of different national practices may arise – while the United States and host countries in general agree on what constitutes a crime, many American observers believe that the host country`s judicial systems offer much lower protection than the United States and that the host country`s courts may be under pressure from the public to be found guilty; In addition, U.S. service members who are invited to send shipments abroad should not be forced to waive their rights under the Rights Act. On the other hand, observers of the host country who do not have a local equivalent of the law of rights often feel that these are irrelevant excuses for special treatment and resemble the extraterritorial agreements demanded by Western countries during colonialism.

A host country where such sentiment is widespread, South Korea, itself has forces in Kyrgyzstan and has negotiated a SOFA that gives its members total immunity from prosecution by the Kyrgyz authorities for any crime, which goes far beyond the privileges that many South Koreans enter into their country`s couch with the United States. [11] SOFAS are often included with other types of military agreements as part of a comprehensive security agreement with a given country. A CANAPÉ itself is not a safety device; On the contrary, the rights and privileges of U.S. personnel in a country in support of the broader security agreement are defined. SOFA may be registered on the basis of powers contained in previous treaties and measures of Congress or as exclusive executive agreements. The United States currently participates in more than 100 agreements that can be considered SOFA.
