Moscow negative about Akhmadov's visit to U.S. State Department

MOSCOW. Jan 24 (Interfax) - Moscow sees the meeting between an official representative of the U.S. Department of State and the so-called "foreign minister of Chechnya" Ilyas Akhmadov as "nothing less than an unfriendly step towards Russia," the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

This step "runs counter to the spirit of cooperation and partnership between the two countries in the fight against international terrorism," the Russian Foreign Ministry release reads.

The Foreign Ministry placed special emphasis on "the fact that the meeting with Akhmadov happens at the moment when more and more evidence arises, including in the U.S. mass media, that confirms the connection between the Chechen warlords and Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda, their financial support of the Chechen terrorists, and their training in terrorist camps in Afghanistan."
