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?

Came accross of this...once again al Jazeera displays being incencere and insensitive. Russian and Iranian experts are there and none of turkic states have an expert there. Instead, Armenian former attache issues opinion there...not even a part of Caspian neighborhood. Besides opinions voiced are so primitive...those are experts?....year over year al Jazeera becoming down and worse, both, in news and analyses
to all oil companies iranians will never accept the deal. the mullah regime does not have the legitimacy to sign such agreements. this stone aged theocracy will be swept away very soon all its international agreements are not valid they are not based upon irans interest but only to keep their brutal hated regime alive.
I'm from UK and no fan of the Russian government or putin.
I have no problem with the people and Russia is very lucky.
Beautiful land, lots of resources, so big that it covers many boarders.
If Russia was to spread its wealth with its people then it could be the best country in the world.
But it's just as greedy as every other rich country.

واگذاری حق 50 در صدی ایران از دریای معروف به خزر یا کاسپین به کشورهای شوروی سابق و گرفتن سهم ناچیز خیانتی آشکار و نابخشودنی به موجودیت ایران است. و با انعقاد قراردادهای ننگین استفاده از منابع نفت و گاز و طبیعی دریا برای ایران میسر نخواهد شد و نیز ناوهای جنگی دیگر کشور ها هم خواهند توانست به سواحل ایران نزدیک بشوند. لذا امضای هر قراردادی با حکومت وقت ایران بی اعتبار بوده و سبب اختلافات جدی و مقابله با کشورهای همسایه شمالی در آینده خواهد گردید.
The country is mismanaged by a bunch of criminal, totalitarian, thieves within the government of Roohanee and the upper level of man-crafted so-called islamic terror team (Grand-thief Seyed Ali Khamenei and Sons, and associated criminals including but not limited to IRGC-QF, Baseech, Larijanis, etc, etc). There is no doubt that the islamic government is a terror regime that suppresses peaceful demonstration, freedom of expression, human rights and tortures political prisoners and innocent students, workers, teachers, the entire resistance against a totalitarian regime based on terror, reception, and religious charlatanism. Europe is only interested into its economical gain and storing and benefiting from billions of dollars stolen from the people and nation of Iran and deposited in their banks. 80% of population living under poverty line and ~35 millions are living under absolute poverty. Thousands of young and old people have been jailed, tortured, and beaten in Islamic regime prisons. What happened to the "Democracy slogans of the European Countries (England, France, Germany, Norway, etc)" Where are the intellectuals who fight for freedom of expression and human rights??????????????? Is it all about Capital and benefit?????????? Where is voice of the people of Iran? Where are the international organization to defend the human rights in Iran?
The mullahs are ready to destroy iran without shame. These people are not iranian nor have they any unterest in iran. They are there to plunder and threaten iranians and the world. A weak iran after mullahs is not in the interest of the world in political and economic terms.
In my opinion this treaty is bold one....for example if a non binding country by this treaty would like to interfere illegal in that region ...all 5 countries will defend together their common economic interest in the region...it is more than an economical issue...Security also...
Usually an international treaty is a result of many acceptable compromises... I reckon the 5 signing countries are well aware of that! In long term this treaty will bring more positive outcomes for each and every one...It is a response to aggressive international stands promoted by US ....US will realise sooner or later that they can't no longer impose their WILL upon those who have different agenda ...AMERICA FIRST...OK...WHY NOT CHINA FIRST OR RUSSIA FIRST A.S.O.!?
Waste of meeting Caspian is Iranian territory always was and always will be if tehran backs down on our sovereignty then I will gurantee the mullahs will be burnt on the streets by the public that's a fact.

هر گونه توافق و تحمیل تقسیم بندی و تعیین خط مرزی و و دادن سهم ناچیز به ایران دردریای معروف به خزر یا کاسپین با حکومت وقت ایران فاقد اعتبار بوده و چه ایران ازحق 50 در صد مساحت و منابع آن استفاده بکند یا نکند ناوهای جنگی کشورهای دیگر نمی توانند به سواحل ایران نزدیک گردند. ولذا امضای این نوع قراردادهای ننگین در آینده لطمه در روابط ایران با کشورهای همسایه شمالی خواهد گذاشت. 50 در صد مساحت و منابع آن استفاده بکند یا نکند ناوهای جنگی کشورهای دیگر نمی توانند به سواحل ایران نزدیک گردند. ولذا امضای این نوع قراردادهای ننگین در آینده لطمه در روابط ایران با کشورهای همسایه شمالی خواهد گذاشت.
It is good as a step for a concrete balance of power. America has been patroling the entire globe which is ridiculous. Neighbours of regions should take responsibility of their sphere in the global relationship of nations. Enough hatred & war! Time to grow up & work efficiently for a better world! Not by greed but by a truly better exchange & sharing for common good.
Fred Schwentafsky - no ! It’s because both Russia and iran , specially iran is trying to go around the US sanctions . Iran’s economy is collapsing and the Regime is worried that it is going to collapse and s Regine change is imminent
Kip Hale :Forget about the oil and gas. Put a highway belt around the (sea/lake), connect it to seaport of each of the five country, the roadsilk to the east with China, and to the black sea and the Mediterranean sea via Turkey; then you'll see what is going to happen. 🤔
Good point . I think they may argue that because it is not connected to any other water way , it will be considered a lake . But because it is large and salty it can’t be either sea or lake . It’s a seake !! Haha
Check their GDP , currency and etc . Iran became poor after Iranian Mullah Regime came through Iranian revolution. This regime is much worse than the North Korean one . Humans have zero rights there in Iran .
