 Baku to host first meeting of high-level working group for Caspian Sea

Baku will host the first meeting of the High-Level Working Group for the Caspian Sea on August 19-20, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry told AzVision.az.

A number of issues arising from the Convention, as well as the results of the Fifth Summit of the Heads of the Caspian littoral States in Aktau, are expected to be discussed at the meeting that will bring together representatives of the Caspian littoral states.

At the meeting, Azerbaijan will be represented by the delegation led by Khalaf Khalafov, the Chief of the Staff of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the representative of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the High-Level Working Group for the Caspian Sea.

As it is known, on 12 August 2018, the "Convention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea" was signed in Aktau, Kazakhstan and the Communiqué of the Fifth Caspian Summit was adopted. Based on these documents, in order to effectively implement the Convention and review cooperation issues in the Caspian Sea, the High-Level Working Group for the Caspian Sea has been established as a regular five-sided consultation mechanism consisting of authorized representatives of the Caspian littoral states.
