We expect the seabed puzzle to be collected, Special Representative of the President of Russia

 

“We expect positive progress in the process of delimitation of the Caspian seabed in the south, and we hope that the seabed puzzle will be finally assembled in the near future”, Ambassador at Large of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Special Representative of the President for Delimitation and Demarcation of the State Border of the Russian Federation with CIS Neighboring Countries Igor Bratchikov told RIA Novosti.

Let me remind you, he continued, that in 2014 in Astrakhan the leaders of the five Caspian Sea states agreed that the problem of delimitation of the jurisdictional limits between the littoral states will be settled from the two different perspectives. In the water area there will be a 15-mile sea space under the national sovereignty of a coastal state and a 10-mile space adjacent to it, where the exclusive rights of the coastal state to produce bioresources is in place, and the common sea space. As for the bottom and subsoil resources of the Caspian Sea, they will be delineated for subsoil use (the so-called resource jurisdiction) by agreement between neighboring states and states lying opposite in a two- and three-sided format. So, the bottom and subsoil resources of the Northern Caspian were divided between Russia, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan on the basis of the agreements dated 1998-2003 and between Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan according to the agreement dated 2014.
