Karasin: states define Caspian's division principle

Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said that the Caspian states defined the principle of the Caspian's division.

"Yes, but I'd rather not go into details," the Kommersant newspaper cited the minister as saying.

Karasin also did not rule out the possibility of a future preparatory meeting of foreign ministers or working groups to ensure that some details of the issue were clarified.

On December 5, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the work on the Convention on the legal status of the Caspian Sea had been virtually completed, and its draft was expected to be subject to approval of the leaders of the Caspian Sea states in Kazakhstan in the first half of 2018.
