Regarding the regulatory issues related to the Caspian Sea, Salehi said the the legal status of the sea needs to be regulated, so there would not be any uncertainty regarding this.

"To regulate relations between Iran and its neighbors, we need political, economic principles," Salehi said. "In this regard, an interactive approach needs to be adopted, and further strenghened."
