PMO News Portal -  Regarding the third meeting of the working group for reviewing the draft of the Caspian Sea Search and Rescue Memorandum between the Caspian littoral states attended by representatives of Iran, Azerbaijan, Russia, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan, Nader Pasandeh noted that Positions and policies of the maritime sector of the Islamic Republic was announced and discussed.

In this meeting, representatives of the General Directorate of Maritime Safety and Protection, Legal Office and General Directorate of Transit, Logistics and Agreements of the Ports and Maritime Organization, as well as experts of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as the Iranian delegation, presented their expert views.

“Due to its sensitive and urgent nature, Marine search and rescue requires that all relevant and competent bodies be fully prepared and coordinated to provide assistance to those in need at sea. As the seas and oceans are often extended far away from land, and the area is covered and ruled by coastal states adjacent to each other, it is necessary to develop and implement agreements in this regard between countries in different parts of the world.” Director General of Maritime Safety and Protection of PMO said.

In this meeting, the provisions of the mentioned draft were discussed and reviewed by experts and representatives of the five Caspian countries.
