The Russian president asked him about the results of the republic's development in the past year, and about further priorities.
Batieyv noted that inter-ethnic accord and tranquillity had been achieved in the republic. "A professional government has been formed, and the republic has entered a good phase of development," said the head of the republic.
According to Batiyev, the year was fruitful. At the same time, he continued, there are a series of problems that cannot be solved without the federal centre's assistance.
