ON LEGAL STATUS OF CASPIAN SEA

REFERENCE


The Republic of Azerbaijan refers to the implementation of traditional economic activities within the framework of respective sectors, on the basis of the established practices on utilization of Caspian Sea resources by the coastal states. 
According to conceptual position of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Caspian Sea should be divided into respective sectors, where sovereign rights and jurisdictions of the coastal states shall be applicable. Division of Caspian Sea into sectors among the coastal states shall be realized taking into consideration the centerline principle, and by means of the established practice, generally acknowledged principles of the international law and the implementation of the sovereign rights of the coastal states of Caspian Sea. 
All these can be reflected in the common document about legal status of Caspian Sea. 
The problems arising from cooperation of coastal states in the issues of common interest can be based on the main document about legal status determining the indefeasible sovereign rights of each coastal state over the respective sector in Caspian Sea. 
Until acceptance of the common convention on the legal status of Caspian Sea, the coastal states shall implement their sovereign rights on the basis of the established practice.

Today, we would like to talk about a miraculous country of Azerbaijan with its unlimited natural resources, centuries-old culture, history and ancient people, whose lifestyle presents a unique and harmonious combination of the traditions and ceremonies of different cultures and civilizations.

Azerbaijan is a geographical name. On the one hand this name is linked with the population, which lived in this region for thousand of years before our era, and who were mostly fire-worshippers. Local population considered that fire was their God and so they worshipped the fire. "Azer" means fire. The Turkic name "Azer" was used for this territory for a long time. The word "Azer" consists of two parts - "az" and "er". In Turkic languages, "az" means a good intention and a fate of success. Thus, the word "Azer" means "a brave man", "a brave boy", "the fire keeper". The word "Azerbaijan" originates from the name of an ancient Turkish tribe, who resided in those territories.

Azerbaijan is one of the most ancient sites of humankind. The humankind was present here at every stage of their historical development. There were living settlements in Azerbaijan even at the earliest stages of humankind. Azerbaijan made its own contribution into the establishment of the current culture and civilization, progress and dialectics.
