The deputies of the Majlis, the lower house of the bicameral parliament of Kazakhstan, approved a draft law "On ratification of the Agreement between Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan on delimitation of the Kazakh-Turkmen state border and delineation of adjacent areas of the fishing zones on the Caspian Sea", the Kazakh news agency Kazinform reported on Tuesday.

The purpose of the treaty is to determine the state border line between Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan in the Caspian Sea, delimiting their territorial waters and adjacent sections of fishing zones.

Presenting the document at the plenary session of the Majlis, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan Mukhtar Tleuberdi said the ratification of the bill will eliminate possible disputes on delineation of the Caspian Sea seabed between the two countries.

The agreement between Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan on the delimitation of the Kazakh-Turkmen state border and the delimitation of adjacent sections of fishing zones on the Caspian Sea was concluded in Ashgabat on October 25, 2021.
