Kazakhstan ratified a treaty with Turkmenistan on the delimitation of the Kazakh-Turkmen state border and the delimitation of adjacent sections of fishing zones on the Caspian Sea on Thursday.
The ratification of the agreement was made during the plenary session of the country’s national senate meeting.
“The parties determined the course of the state border line between Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan on the Caspian Sea, delimiting their territorial waters and the line of demarcation of adjacent sections of fishing zones,” Kazakh Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Mukhtar Tleuberdi said following the session.
Tleuberdi noted that the agreement, after becoming effective, will allow the completion of the process of delimiting Kazakhstan’s borders.
Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan signed an agreement on the delimitation of their borders in October 2021 in the Turkmen capital Ashgabat, while Turkmenistan’s parliament ratified the treaty in April.
