The State Duma ratified on Friday an additional agreement with China
The State Duma ratified on Friday an additional agreement between Russia and the People’s Republic of China on the eastern part of the Russian-Chinese border, which was signed in Beijing on October 14, 2004. The ratification was approved with 307 votes for, 80 against and two abstentions. The agreement demarcates the border on the two sections, which were left for further discussion during the signing of the agreement with China on the eastern part of the Russian-Chinese border in 1991. The point at issue is the area of the Bolshoi Island, in the upper reaches of the Argun River, Chita Region, and the area of the Tarabarov and Bolshoi Ussuriisky islands, situated at the confluence of the Amur and Ussuri Rivers, near Khabarovsk. Those two sections make less than 2 per cent of the Russian-Chinese border, whose total length is 4,300 kilometres. Under the agreement, the border will divide both areas (some 375 square kilometres) between Russia and China almost by equal shares. Part of the Bolshoi Ussuriisky Island and the whole of the Tarabarov Island will be turned over to China
