Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian called upon Iran to speed up the work to conclude an agreement on drawing baselines in the Caspian Sea, Mehr reported.

Speaking at a ministerial meeting of the Caspian states in Turkmenistan, the Iranian Foreign Minister said Tehran supports the five-party mechanisms, including Russia's recent proposal to complete and form a cooperative structure in the Caspian Sea.

He noted that "four years have passed since the signing of the Convention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea, and although we have made an important step in this regard, the very important issues of "defining maritime boundaries" and "demarcation of the seabed and resources of the Caspian Sea subsoil still have to be determined.

He also called for speeding up work on an agreement to define baselines.

He said Tehran supports a collective mechanism to create stability and security in the Caspian Sea region.
