PETROPAVLOVSK KAMCHATSKY, October 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov welcomed the outcome of the parliamentary elections in Georgia which were won by the opposition.
“There has appeared an opening” for the development of economic and cultural ties between Chechnya and Georgia, Kadyrov said an interview with Vesti v Subbotu (News on Saturday) on Russia One television channel on October 6.
According to Kadyrov, it takes no more than half an hour or an hour to get from Chechnya to Georgia, and the opening of this route could bring economic gains. However this was impossible with Mikhail Saakashvili in power. Now the situation may change, he said.
“I see no future for Georgia overseas. It needs a brother, not the one who uses them,” Kadyrov said.
“We like Georgian dances and songs,” he went on. “We will go [to Georgia] with a concert and with sport events, to pick up tangerines and oranges, and we will live well.”
