The Caspian Sea has acquired a Convention on legal status

The Convention on the legal status of the Caspian Sea adopted by the leaders of the Caspian States has solved the main issues that worried the regional states, RISS expert Azhdar Kurtov pointed out. "For example, the delimitation of the Caspian Sea bottom was a serious problem in the 90-s. In 1998, the thesis statement was "We divide the sea bottom, and the water remains as a public resource." But not everyone agreed with this thesis," he said. However, the idea of the Caspian Sea dividing has become gradually more prevalent. At the same time, the water will remain as a public resource. "Now this statement has formed the basis of the signed Convention," he said.
