Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 31 / Trend M. Aliyev /
The scientific community of the Caspian countries should not work in isolation. They have to develop common scientific approaches to solve the environmental problems of the Caspian Sea.
This was stated by a senior researcher at the Institute of Geosphere Dynamics, Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), Boris Golubov during a multimedia teleconference Baku-Moscow-Astana dedicated to the 19th Anniversary of the Tehran Framework Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the Caspian Sea
According to him, it is necessary to adopt a new protocol within the Tehran Convention in order to develop a new common policy on protection of the Caspian Sea and create a unified monitoring system of the seabed.
Golubov noted during the teleconference that the rich reserves of hydrocarbon resources in the Caspian Sea attract an increasing number of oil companies. He also stressed the increasing militarisation of the region.
