Russian President Vladimir Putin has approved a draft agreement for a border treaty between Estonia and Russia.

The Russian government approved the document in September and the Estonian government gave its approval in May.

The next step in the legislative process is for the foreign ministers to sign the document, followed by ratification by each country on the parliamentary level.

Negotiations on the treaty had broken down in 2005 and were re-launched last year. The Foreign Ministry recently announced that bilateral consultations had been successful and that a new plan would add two clauses to the original document, stipulating that the treaty regulates solely the path of the border and rules out territorial claims.
