Ilyumzhinov: "Sanctions by the United States related to my active international policy"

The US Treasury may impose sanctions against the FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov for political reasons. This opinion was expressed himself Ilyumzhinov. For me, this news came as a surprise. I think that sanctions are connected with the fact that I'm a very active foreign policy. I have been in North Korea, Syria, met several times with Bashar al-Assad.
On Sunday night, I am flying in the US, where I will discuss issues related to the World Cup in 2017. I have plans to visit Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York", - said the head of FIDE.

If the US Treasury have questions for me, I am ready to meet. By this logic, against me may also impose sanctions on the part of the Ministry of Finance of Syria, as I talk with the representatives of the United States and fly to the various negotiations", - said Ilyumzhinov.
In addition, Ilyumzhinov said that he does not have any accounts  or yacht or apartment abroad. He added that he is not afraid of provocations during his stay in the United States.
They may check, I did not do anything against the United States, did not steal the money, will not sell guns, they may look at my activities, we are not afraid of anything. There no policy in chess, we are promoting worldwide the sport and to communicate with all "- summed up the head of FIDE.
