GENEVA, July 25. /ITAR-TASS/. The Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) has come against a possibility of stripping Russia of its right to host the 2018 World Cup, the FIFA press service said on Friday.
“FIFA recognises its responsibility and upholds any peaceful and democratic discussions,” the press service said.
“FIFA condemns the use of force and supports mutual understanding, the dialogue and peace. The history proves that the boycott of sporting events, political isolation or confrontation is useless for resolving disputes,” it said.
“The 2018 World Cup in Russia can facilitate a constructive dialogue between peoples and states,” it said.
