No issues can divide people in Chechnya, Ingushetia - Kadyrov

MOSCOW. Oct 10 (Interfax) - Nothing can strain relations between the people of Chechnya and Ingushetia, head of the Chechen republic Ramzan Kadyrov said.

"I visited populated areas in the Achkhoi-Martan district of Chechnya today. I met with residents of Bamut," Kadyrov said on his Telegram channel on Wednesday.

"The main and a very pleasant outcome of the conversation is that the Chechen and Ingush people are brothers, and there are no issues that could divide them," he said.

Kadyrov said everyone with whom he talked spoke very warmly about the people living in Ingushetia.

"I learned there that head of Ingushetia Yunus-Bek Yevkurov was in the nearby communities at the moment. I called him. We agreed to meet, and I traveled to Ingushetia. We spoke very warmly and shared news of our republics," Kadyrov said.

"We once again shared the opinion that nothing should ever trouble relations between the Chechen and Ingush people. We are brothers, and we are united! I asked [Yevkurov] to pass my very good wishes to the Ingush people," Kadyrov said.
