Kazakhstan is hopeful that the work to draft a convention on the legal status of the Caspian Sea will be completed in time for a summit of the Caspian littoral states in the Kazakh capital Astana in 2016.

"We expect the Astana summit in 2016 to make a breakthrough in terms of preparing and possibly signing a five-nation convention on the Caspian Sea," Kazakh Foreign Minister Yerlan Idrisov told a Kazakh Senate session on Thursday.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin also said earlier that it would be quite realistic to finish the work on the Convention on the legal status of the Caspian Sea in time for the Caspian littoral states' summit in Astana in 2016.
