Iran Wants 20% of Caspian Seabed

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Wednesday that Iran wants a 20% share of the Caspian Sea seabed, dismissing claims that its rights could be compromised by the recently signed agreement on the legal status of the sea. 
"The Caspian Sea legal regime not only safeguards our territorial integrity, but also helps us maintain and expand friendly relations with our northern neighbors," he said in an interview broadcast live on state TV on Wednesday, ISNA reported.
