Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
Baku. Turkmenistan has laid no official claims to Azerbaijan to consider the Kapaz field ownership at the arbitration tribunal, Azerbaijan Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov told journalists on July 9, 2012.
He said Azerbaijan has found out about Turkmenistan's intention to consider the case at the arbitration from the Turkmenistan officials' statement in press. However, Turkmenistan has not sent an official note to Baku.
Mammadyarov said that Azerbaijan took the medium lime principle as solution to the problems. Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Russia have divided the Caspian Sea bottom into the sectors between each other on the basis of this principle.
Mammadyarov expressed hope that the issues of sectoral division between Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan as well as Azerbaijan and Iran will be solved on the basis of this principle.
