Russia is considering the possibility of withdrawing from the Soviet-American 'Shevardnadze-Baker Agreement,' which delineated the maritime boundaries of the Bering Strait.

Member of the Committee on International Affairs, Rosa Chemeris, made this statement during a plenary session of the State Duma, as reported by The Moscow Times.

The agreement, signed in 1990, under which the United States received approximately 30,000 square kilometers of the Soviet Union's exclusive economic zone and over 40,000 square kilometers of the shelf, may soon be denounced.

"The next (to be denounced) will be the agreement on cooperation regarding the Bering Strait, concluded in 1990 between Shevardnadze and U.S. Secretary of State James Baker," said Chemeris.

As reported by the publication, her words were confirmed by Deputy Minister of Agriculture Maxim Uvaidov, who was also present at the meeting.
