GROZNY, July 21. /TASS/. Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud will travel to Russia before the end of the year, Chechnya’s leader Ramzan Kadyrov said on Tuesday after talks with Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s defense minister.
"It has been announced that Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud will visit Russia by the end of the year," Kadyrov wrote on his page on a social networking site, adding that the defense minister, whom he met in Saudi Arabia's Red Sea port city of Jeddah, had announced plans to send three delegations to Russia’s North Caucasus republic.
Besides Prince Salman, the Chechen leader said he was expecting Saudi Arabia's foreign minister to arrive in September "to familiarize himself with the situation and examine spheres of influence".
Furthermore, a delegation led by the minister of religious affairs and endowments "will come to explore the experience of fighting terrorist and extremist ideologies", Kadyrov said.
He added that a delegation of Saudi Arabia's investment fund had been instructed to look into projects with Chechnya in which it could participate. There were also plans to consider providing assistance to the republic in various spheres, said Kadyrov.
At Tuesday’s meeting, the sides determined who would be in charge of cooperation between authorities in Saudi Arabia and Chechnya. The Russian republic is due to be represented by Chechen Deputy Prime Minister Khassan Khakimov while Prince Salman’s aide would represent Saudi Arabia.
