The head of the Chechen Republic has reacted to the words of the Belarusian leader. Alexander Lukashenko was responding to a reporter's question on the establishment in Chechnya of an investment platform for economic cooperation with Belarus' participation.
The Belarus President said he was ready to support the proposal and recalled that Minsk had waited for a visit of the Chechen delegation for too long.
Ramzan Kadyrov said he is ready to come to Belarus to discuss ways to enhance cooperation.
Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of the Chechen Republic:
Definitely, I accept your criticism. You are a wise, experienced politician, the leader of the friendly state and the brotherly Russian people! I will consider it an honor for myself to come to Minsk to meet at any time convenient for you.
