Kremlin: Russia, Ukraine to sign border demarcation agreement

Moscow - The agenda for a planned visit by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to Ukraine on May 17-18 includes signing an agreement that would definitively mark part of the border between the two countries but would not apply to disputed sections of the frontier, Medvedev's chief of staff said on Friday.

"A substantial set of bilateral documents is expected to be signed as part of the visit, including an agreement on the demarcation of the Russian-Ukrainian border," Sergei Naryshkin told a briefing in Moscow.

The accord would apply to the "indisputable" parts of the border but not to frontier sections in the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov, which remain a source of dispute, he said.
