GROZNY, October 17. /TASS/. The head of the Chechen republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, has dismissed rumors of a strained relationship with the leader of neighbouring Ingushetia, Yunus-bek Yevkurov.
While answering media questions in Grozny, Kadyrov acknowledged "certain problems in relations with Yevkurov in the past."
"They were related not with some personal qualities, though but with complex issues that had to be addressed," Kadyrov said.
"If you watch the news on the TV, you probably know that Magas and Grozny became sister cities just recently. That would have never happened, if we had had strained relations. Yevkurov has his own region to lead, and I have mine. He is responsible for his region and does a very good job. I wish him every success," Kadyrov said.
He admitted that there were some controversies between the two regions still to be addressed.
"Most of them are over the border between our republics, but we have made a decision not to raise the subject for the time being, while staying aware that in the future they would have to be dealt with in the future," Kadyrov said.
