Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif described the ongoing Caspian Sea Summit in Kazakhstan as a “day of solidarity” of the five Caspian Sea littoral states.
“Day of solidarity of Caspian Littoral States: Codifying cooperation on environment, shipping, fisheries, sustainable development & security w/o foreign military presence. Agreeing to continue friendly dialog on unresolved issues of delimitation & shares of sea & its resources,” Zarif said on Sunday in a message posted on his Twitter account.
During the two-day summit, a deal on the legal status of the world’s largest enclosed inland body of water is expected to be signed.
The Caspian Sea Convention determines the territorial rights of littoral states as well as other matters related to the sea.
The Caspian Sea is the largest enclosed water body on earth by area, variously classed as the world’s largest lake or a full-fledged sea.
