May 17, 2007 -- Latvia's parliament has ratified a long-delayed border treaty with Russia.
Under the agreement, Latvia is giving up claims to territory seized by the Soviet Union after World War II.
Latvian and Russian leaders signed the pact in March.
Russia's parliament has not yet ratified the treaty.
Neighboring Lithuania signed a border treaty with Russia in 1997. Latvia's other Baltic neighbor, Estonia, has no border agreement with Russia.
