"The issue of the legal status of the Caspian Sea is not bilateral, but a multilateral issue," Iranian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Seyyed Abbas Mousavi said at a press conference dedicated to the 30th anniversary of Azerbaijan-Iran diplomatic relations, APA reports.

The ambassador said that we have passed the stages of ratification of the Convention on the "Legal Status of the Caspian Sea", and we are waiting for the approval of the parliament at the last stage. "Once this is resolved, we can readily talk about the joint use of energy sourcesş However, there is one source of energy, which is beyond dissatisfaction, and this source can be exploited on a bilateral and multilateral basis. The names of these energy sources will be unveiled soon.
