Is it a lake or sea? Five nations sign landmark Caspian agreement | Al Jazeera English

It took 22 years of negotiations, but the leaders of Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan have signed an agreement on the legal status of the Caspian Sea.

The agreement means the five countries can move forward with sharing out the resource-rich inland body of water, the largest in the world.
