Mohammad Kambouzia: This matter belongs to the General Assembly

FIDE Vice-President Mohammad Jafar Kambouzia, from Iran, stated for TASS:

"I think that this is the mistake of those who maintain the official FIDE website. This information is inconsistent and can not be true, since it is not the FIDE presidential board that decides on the resignation of the president, but the FIDE assembly. This is a serious question, which belongs to the general assembly with about 200 delegates."

It should be added that Iran still hasn't paid the prize fund for the recent Women's World Championship, and that FIDE had issued a two-weeks notice.
