Kirsan Ilyumzhinov meets with Ambassador of South Sudan to the Russian Federation Chol Tong Mayay Jang

On 23 June, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov met with an old friend, the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of South Sudan in Russia, Chol Tong Mayay Jang.

The meeting was held in an informal setting, which did not prevent the parties to discuss cooperation and a number of business projects. Chol Tong Mayay Jang, with whom Kirsan Nikolayevich had already met in April of this year, invited Ilyumzhinov to visit South Sudan.


Chol Tong Mayay Jang suggested Kirsan Ilyumzhinov to open the Chess Academy in South Sudan and take it under his patronage. It should be noted that South Sudan is the youngest state in the world. And the country's authorities are interested in the development of chess education. In the nearest future, Chol Tong Mayay Jang plans to introduce the teaching of chess in his province schools.

Kirsan Nikolayevich said that the meeting was very warm and friendly, and he was pleased to put on a national African dress donated by the guest.
