The deputy foreign ministers of the five countries surrounding the Caspian Sea will meet in Moscow next week
The deputy foreign ministers of the five countries surrounding the Caspian Sea will meet in Moscow next week to discuss a draft convention on the sea's legal status, Russia said Friday. "The 20th session of the working group on the Caspian's status at the level of deputy foreign ministers will take place in Moscow March 14-15," the Foreign Ministry said. The Caspian Sea issue has long been under discussion among the five littoral states - Azerbaijan, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Iran - which have tried to divide the sea's substantial reserves, including oil, natural gas, and fish, particularly sturgeon. Russia, Azerbaijan and Kazahkstan signed an agreement in 2003 to divide the northern 64% of the sea between themselves, but Iran and Turkmenistan rejected the proposal. "The parties to talks on the Caspian status are continuing to work on the draft convention," the ministry said.
