The Russian Natural Resources Ministry has drafted an application to the UN to extend the borders of the country's continental shelf on the Sea of Okhotsk, a deputy minister said on Tuesday.

"The application has been approved by the Defense Ministry of Russia, the Economic Development Ministry and the Federal Security Service. The Natural Resources Ministry will soon transfer the application to Russia's Foreign Ministry for subsequent submission to the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf," Sergei Donskoi said.

The draft application stipulates the extension of the continental shelf in the Sea of Okhotsk beyond 200 nautical miles from the original line.
