MOSCOW, April 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia welcomes Turkey’s assurances of commitment to the Montreux Convention, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Monday, April 14.
“Russia has noted with satisfaction Turkey’s statement that it will continue, just as it has been doing over the past 78 years, to comply with the Montreux Convention which makes a significant contribution to the security of the Black Sea states,” Lukashevich said in a statement.
According to the Montreux Convention of 1936, which regulates the passage of warships in the Black Sea through the Dardanelles and Bosporus, combat ships of non-Black Sea countries may not stay in the Black Sea more than 21 days, and the combined tonnage of one country’s ships may not exceed 30,000 tons,” he said.
