Disputed border talks to continue with Ukraine

      RBC, 07.06.2006, Moscow 18:31:15.Negotiations with Ukraine regarding the delimitation of the maritime boundary in the Sea of Azov and Kerch Strait are still going on, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the State Duma today. He reiterated that the latest round of bilateral talks had been completed on Tuesday. There, Ukraine unexpectedly challenged the framework agreement of 2003, which states that Kerch Strait has historically belonged to both countries, and should be viewed as such. According to Lavrov, Ukraine proposed an approach to delimitation issues based on generally accepted international principles. "In this situation, our country could not agree to even sign the minutes of the talks," the minister concluded.
