ASTANA, June 25. /TASS/. The Senate of the Parliament of Kazakhstan has passed the bill at Thursday’s session on ratifying the agreement with Turkmenistan on the delimitation of the bottom of the Caspian Sea between the two countries. The document will be sent to the president for signature.
"The agreement will establish a demarcation line in the parts of the Caspian Sea between Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan to ensure Kazakhstan’s rights to explore, develop and exploit the resources in the Caspian Sea and also to conduct other legitimate economic activity," says the conclusion of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Defence and Security.
The interstate agreement was signed in Ashgabat at the end of last year. The document based on international treaties establishes the start and end points of the demarcation line on the bottom of the Caspian Sea between Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.
During its meeting on Thursday, the Senate also passed the bill on the ratification of the intergovernmental agreement on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological resources of the Caspian Sea designed to pool the efforts of the Caspian littoral states and boost their cooperation to protect the biological resources of the Caspian Sea.
