Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan to restore Caspian pollution monitoring

Sep 07, 2002 02:00 AM

Russia, Iran, and Kazakhstan intend to restore the system for the monitoring of the biological balance of the Caspian Sea, Alexander Bedritsky, Chief of Russia's Roshydromet Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Monitoring of the Environment, announced.
Bedritsky, while summing up the results of the 7th session of the five Caspian countries' coordinating committee on hydrometeorology and sea pollution monitoring (CASPCOM) said the government of Turkmenistan had already taken a decision on the matter, which is also to be considered by the Azerbaijani side soon.

Bedritsky believes that "an agreement to this effect will be signed " at CAPCOM's next session next year. No solid system studies of the sea environment and its coastal zone have been carried out ever since the break-up of the Soviet Union. Meanwhile, the need for such studies grows multiply in view of the active development of Caspian offshore oil deposits, Bedritsky said.
"A respective program has been worked out. Its implementation will make it possible not only to rationally use the Caspian natural resources but also abate its pollution," the Roshydromet chief pointed out.
