JRS: I don;t recall anyone saying that the MP would become a "sister Church".
The need for the approval is because the ROCOR bishops would take part in meetings of the

So on that basis, ROCOR would have a voice in governing the Moscow Patriarchate. That is
why the Patriarchate (or the Patriarch) would need to approve.
