The coastlines of the Caspian are shared by Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Caspian is divided into three distinct physical regions: the Northern, Middle, and Southern Caspian.

The Northern–Middle boundary is the Mangyshlak.Capitalizing on the Caspian Sea's vast energy resources requires cooperation from all its coastal states, but it is often difficult for them to reach agreement and any attempt at consensus frequent.

Because of the Caspian Sea’s abundance of natural resources, there have been ongoing territorial disputes between these nations. Commonly, the Caspian Sea is divided as such: Russia, per cent, Azerbaijan per cent, Iran per cent, Turkmenistan per Author: Bryce A.
