The Convention reflects all the legal aspects of the Caspian Littoral States' relations in the Caspian Sea.

According to the Convention, the Caspian Sea will have a special legal status. The provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 1982, as well as the principles applied to transboundary lakes, are not applicable to the Caspian Sea. Only the seabed shall be delineated into sectors, as per sea principles. The sovereignty rights to the water columns shall be established on the basis of the principle that it is a lake.

Thus, all the five littoral states have reached a consolidated approach as to navigation, sub-sea pipelines, and other key issues. The creation of a reliable legal framework will expand the cooperation of all the five littoral states: Kazakhstan, Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan.
