      Russia against Zakayev's planned visit to Denmark

      MOSCOW. Dec 31 (Interfax) - Danish Ambassador to Russia Lars Vissing
      was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday, where he was
      told that Russia is opposed to a planned visit by Chechen separatist
      envoy Akhmed Zakayev to Denmark next spring.

      "On December 31, Danish Ambassador L. Vissing was summoned to the
      Russian Foreign Ministry where Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir
      Chizhov told him that information had arrived about a possible trip by
      Chechen emissary A. Zakayev to Denmark in spring 2005, at an
      initiative of the so-called Danish committee for the support of
      Chechnya," reads a Foreign Ministry press release.

      "Russia wants the Danish authorities to do everything in their power
      to prevent Zakayev from entering Denmark or to detain the terrorist
      accomplice on a request from Interpol in the event of his entry into
      Denmark for his further extradition to Russia and the launching of an
      investigation against him," the release reads.

      Zakayev's visit to Denmark "would mean that Denmark is openly ignoring
      Russia's statement dealing with his [Zakayev's] trip to Copenhagen in
      early December 2004," the ministry said.

      "This situation cannot help but have a negative impact on relations
      between our countries," the ministry said.
