The essential elements of the peace agreement concern relations between Bulgaria and Romania, Greece and Serbia. Under the new agreement, the rumanobular border begins from the Danube over Turtakai and ends on the Black Sea south of Arkansas. Meanwhile, the Serbian-Bulgarian border will begin from the ancient Partarica border and the Greek-Bulgarian border will begin near the Serbian border, near the Belesica Elenira ridge, and end at the mouth of the Mesta River on the Aegean Sea.
