MOSCOW, August 25. /TASS/. Chairman of the Russian Olympic Committee’s anti-doping commission Vitaly Smirnov told TASS on Thursday he has received an invitation to deliver a report at the meeting of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) this November.

"During the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro I met with WADA President Craig Reedie, and WADA approved our position," Smirnov said. "We will continue cooperating with them in this direction. I have been invited to make a speech on our work at the WADA meeting in Glasgow in November."

In early September, the commission plans to sum up the outcome of its work, Smirnov said.

WADA’s executive committee’s meeting is scheduled for November 19. A meeting of the WADA board of founders will be held the next day.

Last month, Russian President Vladimir Putin called on the Russian Olympic Committee to set up an independent public anti-doping commission. On July 25, the executive board of the ROC approved Smirnov, an honorary member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), as its head. Smirnov said the commission would consist of representatives of international federations, renowned athletes and mass media representatives.
