Will the Caspian Sea deal hold? | Inside Story
 
24:31
Some call it a sea, others a lake. For decades its status has been questioned. Five countries - Iran, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan - now agree the Caspian Sea, as it is commonly known, has "special status." They all have coastlines on the water, and disputed who owned the area of water. And a deal’s now been done…to share the surface and divide up the seabed. The new agreement will open the way for oil and gas exploration...if it holds. And it could lead to a new global energy and political alliance?

Seals, caviar and oil: Caspian Sea under threat from pollution
 
01:12
Bordered by Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkmenistan, the 1,000-kilometre-long Caspian is the world's largest inland body of water. It is home to a range of native species -- from the seals to Caspian turtles and the famed beluga sturgeon -- and also to vast energy reserves, estimated at 50 billion barrels of oil. But pollution from the extraction of that oil and gas, along with declining water-levels due to climate change, has left many species under threat and the future of the sea itself at risk.

Wide of summit FILE: Mazandaran Province - 2006 16. Wide of Caspian Sea in Mazandaran Province, northern Iran 17. Various of Iranians spending time on beach by Caspian sea 18. Wide of Caspian sea shore STORYLINE: Iran pressed for a bigger territorial stake in the Caspian Sea during a meeting on Wednesday of nations bordering the sea, a lucrative source of caviar, gas and oil. Tehran insists that any new agreement should give an equal portion of the seabed for each of the five littoral states, while most other countries want the division based on shoreline, which would give Iran a smaller share. "The importance of the Caspian Sea has increased sharply in the past years because of its great amount of natural resources and its strategic position," Iranian Foreign Minister, Manouchehr Mottaki said. "Today we clearly witness the need for enforcing new laws on different dimensions of activities related to the Caspian Sea, including extracting natural resources and the effect of human activities on Caspian Sea environment and wild life," he added. Iran argues that two agreements between it and the former Soviet Union in 1921 and 1940 based on an equal division are still valid. It says the agreements should be the foundation for any new deal involving the new nations along the Caspian formed after the Soviet Union's fall in the 1990s. Mottaki, along with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and their counterparts from Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan attended the conference, which is paving the way for an eventual Caspian Sea summit. A similar summit in 2002 in Turkmenistan failed to reach an agreement. Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan have signed their own bilateral deals dividing 64 percent of the sea, in its northern portion, between them. Iran does not recognise the agreements, but the countries have used the deal to start developing oil and gas resources in the inland sea. Besides the oil and gas reserves in its seabed, the Caspian nurtures the sturgeon fish, source of premium caviar. On the sidelines of the Caspian gathering, Russia's Lavrov was also expected to hold bilateral talks with Mottaki and meet Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. But Lavrov said earlier that Iran's nuclear dispute with the US would not be on the agenda during his visit to Tehran.

Iran and Russia join forces for joint war games in Caspian Sea - Iran military 2019
 
03:47
Iran and Russia join forces for joint war games in Caspian Sea - IRAN and Russia are preparing to hold joint naval exercises in the Caspian Sea for “peace and stability”, says the commander of the Iranian navy. Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi has been quoted by semi-official news agency Mehr as saying the two countries are planning “war games” that will be implemented in the “near future”. Iran and Russia have held several naval drills in the Caspian Sea, including in 2015 and 2017, with the Iranian commander saying cooperation between both navies had “strengthened in recent years”. He also praised wider Caspian Sea cooperation as a “model for guaranteeing peace, stability and friendship”. Mehr reported on Sunday the naval commander said: “Tactical, rescue and anti-piracy war games between Iranian and Russian naval forces are being planned and will be implemented in the near future.” The two countries have close ties, including in Syria where they both back President Bashar al-Assad in the country’s civil war. Mr Khanzadi Iran’s opposition to the military presence of any country from outside the region in the Caspian Sea, saying: “All countries around the Caspian have the same approach,” Mehr reported. Russia said last year it was firmly committed to deepening ties with Iran despite a US decision to quit an international nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Tehran. Enclosed by land and borderes by Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan, the Caspian Sea is the world’s biggest enclosed body of water. The sea is rich in offshore oil and gas deposits worth trillions of dollars. In August Iran and Russia agreed with the three other ex-soviet nations how to divide up the oil and gas resources of the sea, leading the way for more energy exploration. The deal followed a vow made by US president Donald Trump to implement sanctions against Iran’s energy industry in an attempt to restrict its trade of oil. Yesterday Iran sent a menacing warning to the US, threatening to deploy warships in the Atlantic Ocean in response to repeated US deployments in the Persian Gulf. The news came as tensions between Washington and Tehran continued to deteriorate over the former's decision to scrap a landmark nuclear deal and reimpose strict sanctions in response to Iran's alleged ties to revolutionary Shiite Muslim movements across the Middle East and its ballistic missile development. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or so-called Iran nuclear deal, was agreed by China, France, Germany, the European Union, Iran, Russia, United Kingdom, United States (who later withdrew under Donald Trump). It was intended to curb Iran’s nuclear energy programme, which the West maintained it was using as a cover up to develop a nuclear bomb. The agreement was struck in return for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions. But Trump withdrew from the deal last year, branding it “decaying and rotten”.

The importance of Iran
 
01:37
Iran lies at the very heart of the Greater Middle East, and in a way or another is implied in each of the many regional problems. First of all, Iran is the direct heir of the great Persian empire and of its secular cultural influence on the neighboring regions. Tehran’s ruling elite considers Iran a major regional power and for decades has been trying to acquire nuclear capabilities. Moreover, the Islamic Republic is the reference point of the Shiite galaxy, the minority branch of the Muslim world whose members live along the coast of the Persian Gulf – core of the world’s oil production – as well as in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the region. This Shiite crescent is perceived as a serious threat by Saudi Arabia, a mainly Sunni country, and by other Gulf States. But there’s more to it. Iran is home to the world’s third largest oil reserves, that in fact cannot be fully exploited because of the country’s long international isolation. Also, Iran’s strategic position makes it able to blockade the Hormuz strait, a bottleneck on the world’s most important oil sea route. Through its axis with Syria, Tehran finances the Shiite Hizbullah movement in Lebanon and the Sunni extremists in the Gaza Strip, thus posing a direct threat to Israel. Finally, the Iranian plateau is located between the Caucasus and the Indian Sea. Thus, it could be a valid alternative to export the oil and gas from the Caspian basin without crossing Russia. But, at the moment, this remains un unconfessed Western dream.

🇬🇷Greece builds pipeline to transport natural gas from Caspian Sea l Al Jazeera English

Greece is known for its history and climate, but not for oil and gas. That may be about to change with a new pipeline being completed across the north of the country that will transport natural gas from the Caspian Sea to Western Europe. It's part of a European Union policy to move away from dependence on Russian gas after shipments were stopped for two weeks during the 2009 Ukraine crisis, causing shortages in southeastern Europe.

Iran Damavand frigate to help Caspian sea security_March 9, 2015_ناوشكن دماوند درياي مازندران ايران
 
02:17
March 9, 2015 (Persian calendar 1393/12/18) Iran's Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari دريابان حبيب الله سياري says the country’s domestically-made frigate, Damavand, will help promote security in the Caspian Sea. “Boosting security in the Caspian Sea درياي خزر is one of the main goals of the Damavand دماوند frigate,” Sayyari told on Monday on the sidelines of a ceremony to deliver the advanced frigate to the Iranian Navy’s fleet. “The advanced frigate is a result of the efforts made by Iranian specialists to help the country stand independent and achieve self-sufficiency. A high level of technology has been used in the advanced frigate, Damavand. It’s also much faster than the Jamaran frigate,” Sayyari said. The state-of-the-art training Damavand frigate, equipped with modern radar, electronic and reconnaissance systems, was delivered to the Iranian naval forces stationed in the northern port city of Anzali بندر انزلي in a ceremony on Monday. Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani علي شمخاني, who was present in the ceremony to deliver the frigate to the navy, described the Caspian Sea as a sea of peace and friendship, saying the Islamic Republic has played a unique role in providing security, particularly energy security in the sea. “Iran has always played a key role in ensuring peace and security in this sea. Moreover, the launch of the advanced Damavand frigate shows Iran has been successful in providing its own needs domestically despite all sanctions against the country,” he added. The Iranian Navy launched its first domestically-built frigate, Jamaran جماران, in the Persian Gulf خليج فارس in February 2010. The 1,420 Ton frigate is equipped with modern radar systems and other electronic warfare capabilities. It also features highly advanced anti-aircraft, anti-surface and anti-subsurface systems. Iran has repeatedly assured other nations, especially its neighbors, that its military might poses no threat to other countries, insisting that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.

RUSSIA: BAKU: HUGE OIL RESERVES DISCOVERED IN THE CASPIAN SEA
 
03:02
Russian/Eng/Nat As the world's major oil supplies dry up or are threatened by war, the huge oil reserves of the Caspian Sea have caught the eye of international businesses and governments. Estimated to have the equivalent of three North Sea's worth of oil, scores of major companies have set up in the Azeri city of Baku to take advantage of the boom. Although an international oil consortium has been set up to avoid conflict some experts believe the region could become as volatile as the Middle East in the next century. For this new floating oil platform the calm waters of the Caspian are ideal for exploration and drilling. It's part of the region's third oil boom which started with the fall of the Soviet Union. International oil companies have flooded in since 1991 to tap he area's rich reserves on land and under the sea. Both Russia and America have formed foreign policy around the region, well aware that the development of oil resources can create tensions which often lead to hostilities. Regional rivals Turkey, Russia and Iran are vying for control of the oil exports in an effort to gain the upper-hand in the region and to secure influence over the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. But the Azerbaijani president Geidar Aliyev says that a combination of he new wealth brought to his country by the oil boom and his firm rule will ensure stability rather than conflict. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) \"I don't think Azerbaijan is threatened by the danger of a North-South conflict or between different countries. I don't think it's a reality but I can't guarantee against that possibility.\" SUPER CAPTION: Geidar Aliyev, Azeri President The oil reserves in this part of the world are so great that no single company could efficiently exploit them. So U-S, Russian, Japanese, British, Saudi, Turkish and Azerbaijani interests have created an international consortium. Businessmen hope international cooperation will help keep the region politically quiet and eventually turn it into a major supplier of high-grade oil for world markets. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"I think that you can see from the international interest in the Caspian at this point in time how important this is going to be as a long term resource centre to supply global oil. It's also coming onto the market , onto the global market at a time when other major basins such as the North Sea, such as Alaska etc are going into significant decline.\" SUPERCAPTION: Terry Adams, head of international oil consortium Turkey and Russia are engaged in a bitter battle to export the Caspian oil to Europe via pipelines through their own territories. So far the international consortium has not decided on the long term solution, but early oil exports will go through Russia and Georgia. Political analysts are not that optimistic of stability in the region as the people of the Caspian have along history of confrontation and full-scale wars, often triggered by rivalry over who would control the oil wells. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"It is a danger that the region could become as explosive as the Middle East. You have all the same ingredients which are available in the Middle East. You also have a long history of rivalry between Turkey and Iran, Russia and the West.\" SUPER CAPTION: Viktor Trenin, Carnegie Institute Moscow It remains to be seen whether economic expediency and common sense will prevail in regional politics over centuries of animosity and mistrust. For the time being, Azerbaijan is looking to the future full of hope.

The Great Caspian Arms Race: Caspian Oil Fuels Military Tensions
 
02:50
Learn more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/caucasus-caspian-azerbaijan-kazakhstan-tur... The Caspian Sea has been a strategic backwater with little relevance to the rest of the world for most of its history. But recent discoveries of large oil and natural gas reserves in the Caspian Sea has set the stage for a Caspian arms race. Russia, the most powerful player in the Caspian region, has announced a plan to add 16 new ships to its navy. Iran is strengthening its second largest naval force in the Caspian region. The country's secretive posture on the Caspian sea intimidates its neighbors Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan who are building their own naval forces from scratch with modest assistance from the U.S. Mistrust lingers over the Caspian "Sea of Peace" as each country views the others' navies as a security threat and invest a lot of money to boost its own military.

Iran Kazakhstan China Economic corridor From China Ningbo harbor to Caspian port
 
02:15
January 20, 2019 (Persian calendar 1397/10/30) Ningbo great harbor is being connected to Caspian port complex by sending first cargo. First shipment of goods from Great Ningbo Harbor of China was sent to Caspian Port complex via new corridor of China - Kazakhstan - Iran. This cargo was shipped from Ningbo port in northeastern of China to be the transfer from new corridor then goes through railway to the port of Aktau in Kazakhstan and shipped to the Caspian port complex by ship said Reza Masrour رضا مسرور. The previous shipments was shipped to Iran from central and western of China, and the importance of this new consignment was due to its origin that is coming from eastern China, which illustrates advantage of shipping through this route from China to Iran over its current routes.

The chairman of the board of directors and managing director of the organization pointed out the role of corridor in development of trade exchanges and transit of goods from China through Anzali free zone route to neighboring countries.

He explained importance of this transshipment in the new Iranian-Chinese corridor as a transfer of cargo from the easternmost point of China as a fully developed region, adding that the transit route of China (Urumchi), Kazakhstan (Aktau Port) Iran( Caspian port complex) In order to create new combined routes between Iran and China by orientation of Anzali Free Zone, the increased cargo transportation capacity in the Caspian Sea from this July with the presence of the first vice president and national and provincial officials and chairs of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce by berthing of first ship on this route has officially inaugurated on the Caspian port complex. It should be mentioned that this corridor starts from China and connects through railway of China-Kazakhstan to Aktau port and through Caspian Sea reach to Caspian port. With the operation of this corridor 10 million tons of goods can be transported, and the main advantage of this corridor is to reduce the distance, time and cost of shipping goods over the existing route through the Yellow Sea, the Indian Ocean and Bandar Abbas in southern Iran. Ningbo is a city in the northeast of Jijiang Province of China, 25 kilometers east sea of China as one of the most important industrial and commercial ports of the country since seventh century up.

Iran "Damavand" destroyer Joins caspian sea naval fleet   ناوشکن دماوند
 
03:59
Iran’s domestically-made destroyer, Damavand دماوند, has officially joined the Navy’s fleet in the Caspian Sea درياي خزر north of the country. The country’s state-of-the-art training frigate, equipped with modern radar, electronic and reconnaissance systems, was delivered to the Iranian naval forces stationed in the northern port city of Anzali بندر انزلي in a ceremony on Monday. High-ranking Iranian officials, including Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani علي شمخاني, Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan سرتيپ حسين دهقان and Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari دريابان حبيب الله سياري attended the ceremony. Speaking at the event, Shamkhani described the Caspian Sea as a sea of peace and friendship, saying the Islamic Republic has played a unique role in providing security, particularly energy security in the sea. The Caspian Sea is bounded by Kazakhstan, Russia, Azerbaijan Republic, Iran, and Turkmenistan Also Sayyari said Damavand is a Jamaran-class destroyer which is more sophisticated than Jamaran جماران. Earlier in May 204, Sayyari said the Damavand frigate is equipped with advanced sea-launched drones as well as cruise missiles. The Iranian commander said that efforts have been made to employ cutting-edge technology in building the frigate, stressing that Damavand would also be equipped with more advanced cruise missiles than those of domestically designed and built Jamaran frigate. The Iranian Navy launched its first domestically-built frigate, Jamaran, in the waters of the Persian Gulf خليج فارس in February 2010. The 1,420-ton frigate is equipped with modern radar systems and other electronic warfare capabilities and has a top speed of up to 30 knots and a helipad. The vessel, equipped with torpedoes and modern naval cannons, also features highly advanced anti-aircraft, anti-surface and anti-subsurface missile systems. Damavand, however, is longer but lighter than Jamaran frigate and is capable of tracking and targeting aerial, surface and sub-surface targets simultaneously. It is equipped with a cruise missile system, torpedo launchers, 40-mm and 76-mm cannons, radar processing systems as well as tactical surface and aerial radars. more videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez_xPh8tDkY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2fFhzt9bjo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suBI2FF0wvM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVtqc-9AJtk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cQOnL2pWSY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HcPel7OFqo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLlx4DDgwyE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUnGijPDvfI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RlzKr9cG-k https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9d9ypIVjT4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7P1E8NopPog https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SOBEtWpqb4

Traveling Iran by train | DW Documentary
 
42:25
Iran is opening its doors to foreigners and a train ride from the Persian Gulf to the Caspian Sea is a great way to get to know the country and its people. The travel restrictions that are now being lifted were in place for decades. Many Iranians are hoping they will now be able to lead a freer life – and we meet many of these hospitable and welcoming people on our journey through the Middle Eastern nation. The country’s most important rail link, the Trans-Iranian Railway, runs for approximately 1400 kilometers from the Persian Gulf via Teheran to the Caspian Sea. The journey starts in Khorramshahr on the Shatt al-Arab, the river border between Iraq and Iran. Traveling past oil fields, the train reaches Shushtar. One of the top sights here is the historic hydraulic system, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After that, the train heads up into the Zagros Mountains. The journey is interrupted by a break for prayer. Breath-taking landscapes move past the train window until we reach the highest point not only of our journey but of the entire rail network: 2,200 meters above sea level between Dorud and Arak. During a brief stop in Qom, travelers can refuel with sohan, a pastry made of wheat germ, flour and sugar. The next section of the track is high-speed and we continue on to Teheran at 160 km/h. The metropolitan area is home to more than 15 million people. The last leg takes us to the north of the country. In the Alborz Mountains, we find out what role the Trans-Iranian Railway played during Stalin’s major offensive against the German army in World War II. Our oriental rail adventure ends in Bandar-e Torkaman on the Caspian Sea. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

Caspian Sea countries' summit in Iran - 16 Oct 07
 
02:26
He's the first Russian leader to visit Tehran since the second world war, and President Vladimir Putin's visit comes at a crucial time. Iran's standoff with the US and other world powers over its nuclear programme shows no sign of abating, and Russia has positioned itself as mediator. Just a few hours ago, Putin fired a warning shot at the US by making it clear that any use of military force in the Caspian region was unacceptable. Ayman Moheldine has this report. Amid much fan fare, pomp and even reports of an assassination plot the sitting president of Russia, Putin arrived in Iran. It is the first such visit by a sitting president since 1943 despite participating in a five-nation Caspian Sea Summit, it's the relations between the two that will be closely watched. Now, Moscow, which has had traditionally warm ties with Iran, will attempt to iron out possible differences over Tehran's nuclear energy program which it's helping to develop. And this is where the Russians are doing exactly that the Bushehr Power Plant. It's 90% complete but is still far from operational...Russian contractors say Iran hasn't made timely payments a claim it denies. Tehran has said Moscow was delaying construction because of intense western pressure. That has made some Iranians lose trust. It's not just bilateral issues that will dominate the headlines. Western powers will be watching the Putin's visit very closely for any signs there's a shift in Moscow's policies over Iran nuclear program - a matter Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says is closed. While the US, UK and France have sought tougher sanctions against Iran, Russia has traditionally shied away from criticizing its nuclear energy programme. President Putin has favored diplomacy over sanctions...but if the bilateral relations between the two countries cool down, western powers may be empowered to seek the a third round of sanctions with Russian support.

The new ship is capable of 30 knots and can deploy one helicopter. Powered by a 20,000 horsepower engine, the Jamaran-2's armaments include surface-to-air missiles, anti-ship missiles, torpedoes and a 76mm auto-cannon. Although classified as a destroyer by Iran's navy, its displacement of 1,420 tonnes places it closer to a light frigate in the U.S. navy. The Jamaran-2 will undergo about six more months of testing before entering active duty.

Iran Naval drill in Caspian sea code named Sustainable Security & Power 96 رزمايش نيروي دريايي ايران
 
02:42
July 2, 2017 (Persian calendar 1396/4/11) The Iranian Navy on Sunday began massive military exercises in waters of the Caspian Sea north of the country. A huge number of naval forces aboard destroyers and military vessels are taking part in the drills, code-named “Sustainable Security and Power 96”. During the five-day maneuver, new weapons, military systems, and equipment manufactured by the Iranian Defense Ministry will be unveiled or tested by the Navy. A number of the Air Force’s fighter jets and air defense systems have also been deployed to the area to ensure the security of the drills. Over the past few years, the Iranian Navy's forces have held several military drills in southern and northern waters. Deputy Commander of Iranian Navy Rear Admiral Mahmoud Mousavi دريابان محمود موسوي said the naval forces are planned to test the country’s new weapons and military equipment in the ongoing military drills in northern Iran. The war game code-named “Sustainable Security and Power 96 امنيت پايدار و قدرت نودوشش” is part of annual exercises of the Nay in the waters of the Caspian Sea, Admiral Mousavi said in a press conference on Sunday. Sea and air units of the Navy, shore-to-sea missile systems, diving teams, healthcare, intelligence systems, and commando units specialized in marine warfare have been deployed to the drills, he noted. The commander further emphasized that ensuring the security of the northern and southern waters has always been one of the main goals of the Islamic Republic. During the five-day exercises, new weapons, military systems, and equipment are going to be tested by the Navy, he said. Some of the Army’s fighter jets and air defense systems have also been deployed to the area to ensure the security of the drills.

Wide of meeting STORYLINE: Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, arrived in Tehran on Monday ahead of the summit of Caspian Sea littoral (coastal) states, scheduled for Tuesday. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad greeted Nazarbayev, who was welcomed with an official guard of honour ceremony. Nazarbayev is one of five leaders set to visit Tehran for the summit, which will unite leaders from countries bordering the oil and natural gas rich Caspian Sea; Iran, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan. Questions were raised on Monday as to whether Russian President Vladimir Putin would attend the summit, following reports of a possible assassination attempt while in Iran. Putin's presence is not expected to produce any breakthrough in talks between the five nations on dividing the resources of the inland sea, which is believed to contain the world's third-largest energy reserves. The legal status of the Caspian has been in limbo since the 1991 Soviet collapse, leading to tension and conflicting claims to oil deposits. Iran, which shared the Caspian's resources equally with the Soviet Union, insists that each coastal nation receive an equal portion of the seabed. Russia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan want the division based on the length of each nation's shoreline, which would give Iran a smaller share. The first summit of Caspian Sea states was held in Ashkhabad, capital of Turkmenistan in 2002. The Caspian Sea, located in northern Iran, is the world's largest body of water surrounded by land which does not have any outlet to other seas. It is bordered on the west by Azerbaijan and Russia, on the northeast and east by Kazakhstan, on the east by Turkmenistan, and on the south by Iran. Fish stocks in the Caspian Sea provide a major income source for many locals and it also supplies the domestic needs of fishery products as well as export. The high-quality caviar of the Caspian Sea is world famous. Thousands of Iranians also visit the Caspian Sea every year for their holidays.

SUBSCRIBE FOR UPDATES NEWS REPORT FROM PRESS TV (www.presstv.ir) Iran launches the indigenously-manufactured Jamaran 2 destroyer in the Caspian Sea near the northern port city of Bandar Anzali in the presence of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Jamaran 2, a Wave-class warship, has been designed and built by the experts at Iran's Defense Ministry and has state-of-the-art navigation equipment and complex defensive systems. The production line of the advanced indigenous destroyer was inaugurated in Bandar Anzali six years ago with the aim of protecting Iran's 20-percent share of the Caspian Sea.

More ships in its class are under construction to be added to the Iranian Naval fleets in the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf soon. The ship is designed for a crew of 140.[10] The Jamaran class combines anti-submarine assets with other systems of weapons capable of dealing with surface and air threats as well.

AZERBAIJAN/TURKMENISTAN: OIL PRODUCTION POLLUTES CASPIAN SEA AREA
 
03:51
English/Nat Seventy years of intensive oil production during the Soviet era has devastated the Caspian Sea and surrounding area. Constant demands to increase production levels meant workers were under pressure to produce vast amounts of oil with no heed for the environment. Now local environmental groups are calling on foreign oil companies to help clean up the environment. And a new study is underway to find out the extent of the devastation and also the main source of pollution. The Caspian Sea area is one of the world's biggest sources of oil. For decades, man has exploited the land and sea, with no heed for the environment. During the Soviet era, oil production was intensive to meet Russian annual targets. Today the area is a dead zone, devoid of wildlife. The soil glistens black with oil spilt from dripping pipelines and machinery. Under the Soviet Union when drilling was completed, oil wells were never sealed, and so oil poured onto the ground. Environmentalists say that this highly visible devastation may be the least of the problems. They are concerned about more invisible materials such as radioactive and highly toxic waste leaking into the Caspian. Broken pipes are repaired in a make-shift manner. But this is not enough to prevent gas hissing out. The ground is a helter skelter of old rusting pipes. Today no one is quite sure where they lead to and what they carry. SOUNDBITE: (English) "During the Communist regime, the main goal was the extraction of oil and nothing else. Nobody cared about the environment, and our leaders every year made their plan to the centre in Moscow that we fulfilled the plan for this year, for the month and so on. So that's why the situation is disastering (disastrous). SUPER CAPTION: Bahar Hadji-Zadeh, board member of Azerbaijan Green Movement Scrap metal litters the coastline of Turkmenistan. Although the metal could be recycled, the Turkmen government has made not effort to do anything with it. Local environmental groups now see foreign oil companies as their only hope to clean up the environment. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We should do a lot together, we should increase the awareness of the population first, to educate the population, to improve the economic situation, to spend money for this for the environment and we should force these oil companies to do something for this." SUPERCAPTION: Bahar Hadji-Zadeh, board member of Azerbaijan Green Movement One of the companies, Monument, which operates in Turkmenistan, says it is trying to clean up areas which it has taken over.

During the Soviet Union, drilling platforms were never reused, but were left to rot. Some have imploded, others have keeled over into the sea. Divers report that the seabed is a mass of metal.

Caspian Sea: After 22 years of wrangling, deal over oil- and gas-rich body of water reached – and it
 
05:34
After 22 years, an end is in sight for a dispute over a sea that questioned whether it was even a sea. On Friday, the Kremlin announced that agreement had been reached between Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan, the five littoral states bordering the Caspian Sea. Barring last-minute hiccups, the new convention will be signed in the Kazakh port city of Aqtau on Sunday. Negotiations up to this point have been tough. The convention comes only at the end of two decades, 51 working group meetings, more than a dozen meetings between foreign ministers, and four presidential summits. But then again, a lot is at stake - namely billions of dollars of oil and gas contracts. The Caspian, the largest enclosed body of water in the world, contains a massive 48 billion barrels of oil and 9 trillion cubic meters of natural gas in proven offshore reserves. And that is what we know about: there may be much more, but territorial disputes have frustrated attempts at proper exploration. The Caspian problem arose after the breakup of the USSR. Before then, the water was split between two nation-states: Iran and the Soviet Union. Afterwards, there were four new nations to deal with. One of the major stumbling blocks has been the status of the sea itself. There are no ways in or out of other seas or oceans. So is it really a sea - or a lake? This is no simple debate over words, but of development rights and cash. If it is designated a lake, the rights are divided up equally, with each nation receiving 20 per cent. If, however, it is deemed to be a sea, it is split between the competing nations in proportion to each one's share of its coastline. Iran, the major loser in the sea approach, had been resisting the definition as a result. An early draft of the document published for a short time on the website of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev suggested that the countries would agree to classify it as a sea. According to that document, the sea bed will be divided into sectors and the waters between nations, fishing and common spaces. But a surprise may be in store. Speaking with the Kommersant newspaper on Friday, deputy foreign minister Grigory Karasin said there would be a special “new” legal status for the Caspian. “The Caspian Sea will have its own legal status,” he said. “The five littoral states will have the full jurisdiction over resources in their sectors of the seabed. ”In the absence of an agreement, the countries have continued to develop the seabed they believed to belong to them. To some extents, the treaty will formalise what is already happening. But, crucially, it will also reaffirm Russia’s geopolitical dominance in the region. It is understood the convention will contain clauses asserting that only the Caspian five will have the rights to use the sea region for military purposes. Airspace would be divided between the signatory states, and Russia’s Caspian Flotilla will be guaranteed access to the entire sea. Moscow was reported to
