Kirsan Ilyumzhinov: "I am ready for talks with the US authorities"

FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, who was denied entry to the United States, does not exclude the possibility of meeting with the American authorities to resolve the situation.

"So far, I didn’t receive any kind of reaction on their part. Probably, some officials are already standing with suitcases on their way out while the others have not arrived yet. There will be a new team: the new head of the US Treasury, new minister. If they want to meet me, I am open for negotiations. I act in the legal field," said Ilyumzhinov.

At the same time, the head of FIDE did not rule out a holding in the future a match for the title of the World Chess Champion once again in the United States.
"The match for the world championship will be held in Asia two years later and after that we'll consider the applications," summed up Ilyumzhinov.
