If the court in a proceeding under § 15-366 finds that the foreign-country judgment is entitled to recognition under this subchapter, to the extent that the foreign-country judgment grants or denies recovery of a sum of money, the foreign-country judgment is:

(1) Conclusive between the parties to the same extent as the judgment of a sister state entitled to full faith and credit in the District of Columbia would be conclusive; and

(2) Enforceable in the same manner and to the same extent as a judgment rendered in the District of Columbia.
