ATHENS, December 6. /TASS/. President of the World Chess Foundation (FIDE) Kirsan Ilyumzhinov suggested the organisation's presidential council suspends his authorities, head of FIDE's representation in Russia Berik Balgabayev twitted on Sunday.

FIDE presidential council takes place in Athens on Sunday.

"FIDE president suggests suspending his authorities - to next presidential council," the official wrote.

The presidential council has meetings every quarter.

On November 25, the U.S. announced sanctions against Ilyumzhinov, 53, claiming he has relations with head of the Syrian central bank. Later on, Ilyumzhinov said he did not have any commercial interests in Syria.
