Khalaf Khalafov: We hope Convention on Caspian Sea legal status will be approved at Astana summit
“We believe the Astana summit will be the last to determine the legal status of the Caspian Sea,” Azerbaijani Deputy Foreign Minister Khalaf Khalafov said on Thursday, APA reports.
Khalafov said the sides are hoping for the approval of the draft convention at this summit.
“Once the Convention is approved, there is going to be huger work. There will be new summits which focus on the discussion of economic, security and communication issues. The sides have agreed on holding the summit in 2016. But the exact date will be decided by the presidents,” the deputy FM noted.
