MOSCOW, November 9. /TASS/. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) may consider suspension of the All-Russia Athletic Federation (ARAF) at its session in Monaco on November 26-27, ARAF Secretary General Mikhail Butov said on Monday.
"The IAAF council may convene for an urgent meeting but a regular session is set for November 26-27," Butov said. "I think these issues will be considered then."
Butov said Russia’s athletics federation ARAF would present its plans for struggle against doping abuse to the International Association of Athletics Federations.
"We will be actively studying the documents. In any case we will do our utmost to write a letter to the IAAF to express the ARAF’s position regarding the further struggle against doping abuse: what we have been doing so far and what we plan to do, as well as evaluations of the conclusions the WADA’s commission has at its disposal. Then we will wait and see," Butov said.
WADA’s Independent Commission has advised the IAAF to bar Russian athletes from all competitions.
