The Caspian countries have agreed on the principle of division of water space

16
The principle of the division of the Caspian Sea is agreed, leads Look words of the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Grigory Karasin.




Yes, (agreed) but I would now prefer not to go into details,
Karasin said, answering the corresponding question of a newspaper correspondent Kommersant.

He did not answer affirmatively the question whether the convention on the legal status of the Caspian Sea would be signed next year.

I am a "broken" person, so I will not categorically say "yes",
the diplomat said, adding that "the Fifth Caspian Summit in Kazakhstan is emerging."

According to him, "the agenda of the upcoming meeting of heads of state will be very rich," but there may be nuances that require additional coordination. Therefore, Karasin noted, “additional meetings of heads of ministries of foreign affairs or working groups are not excluded” on this issue.

“After the collapse of the Soviet Union with the advent of new subjects of international law - Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan - the issue of determining the legal status of the Caspian Sea rose between five countries. In Soviet times, the Caspian Sea was practically an inland pond within the borders of the USSR and washed the shores of Iran only in the south, ”the newspaper reminds.

For many years, Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan could not come to an agreement on the status of the Caspian Sea, in particular, because of the issues of recognition of it as sea or lake (their delimitation is regulated by various provisions of international law).

At present, the legal regime of the Caspian Sea is determined by the Treaty between the RSFSR and Persia of February 26 of 1921 of the year and the Treaty of Trade and Navigation between the USSR and Iran of March of 25 of March of 1940.

      No, it will not dry out soon. Still, the Volga is not the Amu Darya.
      And what is “agreed” does not mean “signed”. Otherwise, the details would have been announced. Still may change.

          There was a time when even the Mediterranean Sea was dry.
          So the Caspian will dry up. But not now (not this century).

              If there are no people, then one small earthquake in the area of ​​the Volga-Don canal, and now the Volga already flows into the Black Sea.

            The Caspian Sea and the Sea of ​​Azov once used to be connected along the Kumo-Manych depression in ancient times, in Soviet times there was a project of a shipping channel through a network of Manch lakes to the Don ... by the way, locks operate from the Don to the Veselovsey and Proletarsky reservoirs ...

      They share and want to conclude an agreement even because the US is trying to get in there too. Well, how, we all know.

      Its northern part is shallow. She will dry up.
      And to the south it is deeper and deeper.

    Nothing is clear from this. It’s clear that the matter is dark. The question is of course very urgent.

    I’m a “beaten” person, so I will not categorically say “yes”

    An anecdote for this reason, "with a beard", but still ...

    If the diplomat says yes, it means maybe
    If a diplomat says “maybe” - it means “no”
    If a diplomat says no, then it’s not a diplomat !!! wink

    Putin would have thought better about the replacement of power in Kazakhstan, then this issue would have been solved very quickly! Iran and Turkey are on the side of Russia, and Azerbaijan in the past has been rhetorizing Russia with this topic in exchange for the Alliance on Karabakh! Previously, Nazarbayev was writhing from the Leader of the Post-Soviet Space, but now they Put him out, He wanted to crush ALL Post-Soviet Asia for himself ---- it didn’t work out! Here a lot of things are involved in the CASPIAN Theme. I lived on the Caspian coast for 25 years in Kazakhstan!
