Russia ratifies agreement between Azerbaijan and Russia on state borders
Today members of the Federation Council ratified an agreement between Azerbaijan and Russia on the state borders, setting mutual national borderline points between Russia, Azerbaijan and Georgia extending to the Caspian Sea, RIA Novosti reported.
The agreement states that the line corresponds to the former administrative border between Dagestan ASSR and Azerbaijan SSR.
Russia is the first country with which Azerbaijan has signed an agreement on state borders, signed in Baku on Sept. 3, 2010.
Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry again confirmed that at present Russia and Azerbaijan do not have territorial claims.
The border between Russia and Azerbaijan extends 284 km. The total length of the Russian border is about 60,000 kilometers.
The Russian and Azerbaijani sides have agreed to synchronize the implementation of this agreement, for cooperation in the rational use and protection of the Sumar River transboundary water resources. The agreement was signed in 2010.
