ASTANA. June 26 (Interfax) - The Senate, the upper chamber of Kazakhstan's parliament, has adopted a bill ratifying an agreement on cooperation in security measures in the Caspian Sea area, an Interfax correspondent reported.
The document, which was signed by Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Iran, Russia and Turkmenistan in Baku on November 18, 2010, will now be submitted to the Kazakh president for signing.
