"The visit will go beyond the discussion of Saudi Arabia's aid to the Chechen Republic and may strengthen relations between Russia and the Saudi Kingdom in general," Kadyrov told journalists.
During the visit he will give the Russian President's personal message to Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Abdallah ibn Abd al-Aziz al-Saud, the Chechen president said.
Kadyrov intends to pay special attention to the problems of Russia's admission to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, he added. "Russia has a right to do so, as over twenty million Muslims live here, and the country's leadership headed by President Vladimir Putin are doing their best so that Muslims could practice their religion freely," he pointed out.
The schedule of the visit is rather tight, Kadyrov announced. "I have 11 official meetings and talks scheduled. For example, I will meet the Crown Prince, government ministers, representatives of the Islamic Bank and other organizations," he explained.
