    KIEV, January 28, 2004. (RIA Novosti correspondent Yevgeni Alexandrov) - The Ukrainian-Russian negotiations on fixing boundaries in the Azov-Kerch water area and in the Black Sea will start in Moscow on Thursday.

    A spokesman for the press service of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry told RIA Novosti on Wednesday that at their two-day meeting the Deputy Foreign Ministers of the two countries, Alexander Motsik and Viktor Kalyuzhny, will start the process of coordinating draft agreements on the Ukrainian-Russian border in the Sea of Azov and in the Black Sea and also in the Kerch Strait. They will also discuss the question of fixing boundaries in the exclusive economic zones and on the continental shelf of Ukraine and Russia.

    The spokesman for the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry pointed out that this would be the first meeting after the Presidents of Ukraine and Russia signed a Treaty on Cooperation in the Use of the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait on December 24, 2003.

    That document defined the status of the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait as the internal waters of Ukraine and of the Russian Federation and also stated the necessity of dividing the Sea of Azov between Ukraine and Russia by a line of the state frontier.
