Kazakh Leader to Visit

ALMATY, Kazakhstan () -- Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev is traveling to Moscow for minor medical treatment and may hold talks with President Boris Yeltsin during a weeklong stay, spokesman Doulat Kouanychev said Friday.


Kouanychev did not give any details of the medical condition of the 54-year-old president, a keen tennis player, but said it was "not serious."


Sources close to the president said Nazarbayev would meet Yeltsin to sign documents on the sensitive issue of the status of Russian citizens in Kazakhstan. They are also likely to discuss the fighting in Chechnya.
