The Prime Minister of Ingushetia, Yevloyev Zalimhan called for the speedy determination of the border with Chechnya is, in his opinion, the interests of the peoples of both republics and will be historically important step, according to the press service of the regional government with reference to the newspaper «Ingushetia».

The question of the definition of the administrative border line between Chechnya and Ingushetia is intermittent since the early 90-ies, when the two republics were part of the Chechen-Ingush ASSR was divided after the coming to power of Dudayev. In 1993, the head of Chechnya, Ingushetia, and Dzhokhar Dudaev and Ruslan Aushev signed an agreement under which the Sunzha district, with the exception of the settlements of Sernovodsk and Assinovskaya, went to Ingushetia.

The head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov in September 2012 created a Commission for «clarification and harmonization of administrative border» between the two republics. At the beginning of September Kadyrov signed a decree creating a state Commission to clarify the administrative border of Chechnya and settlement of contentious issues in its establishment.

«The land on which our ancestors lived, the boundaries of our subjects is a sensitive issue and requires decisions on the principles of legality and justice. I am convinced that a speedy delimitation of the border between the Republic of Ingushetia and the Chechen Republic in the interests of our peoples and will be historically important step. Definition of the boundary between the two entities will allow us to avoid crises in the future, will give momentum to the economy, and most importantly, we can concentrate our political efforts in other areas and keep the spirit of brotherly relations between the Ingush and Chechen people», — quotes the press-service of the word Yevloyev.

He also noted that amid reports of the boundary Commission there are recriminations, increases aggression. «You can also see the calls of individuals, «experts of history» to rash drastic action that might aggravate the situation, alienate us from the main goal. I would ask the people of the Republic of Ingushetia the youth to remain calm, our inherent wisdom, at this critical time not to lose trust to each other,» said Yevloyev.
