Impediments Remain to Caspian Sea Legal Regime

The prospects of signing a convention on the Caspian Sea legal regime after years of haggling seem bleak due to a variety of reasons that could give rise to tensions in the region, according to an article published by a news agency in Tehran. 
Heads of the five Caspian littoral states—Iran, Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan—are scheduled to meet in the Kazakh city of Aktau on August 16, in which a deal is expected to be finalized, Tasnim News Agency reported Monday. 
Although they appear to have finally settled their differences and agree on delineating their maritime borders, the process of finalizing an agreement could drag on for a number of reasons, including the fact that it could pave the way for the export of Turkmenistan gas to Europe, the article said.
