ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts made by Russia to counter weapons of mass destruction (WMD) threat on high seas. For this Russia has called on its Caspian neighbours to create a joint naval task force to prevent the smuggling of WMD or their component parts, on the high seas. The scheme, promoted rapidly in the context of the American-led international Proliferation Security Initiative, is linked to suspicions casted on Iran for pursuing an atomic weapons policy in contravention of its obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
