FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter and his World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) counterpart, John Fahey, had a telephone conversation yesterday.

"There is no personal disagreement between us," the FIFA President announced after the conversation, adding: "We fundamentally agree on the measures to be taken to combat doping and promote clean sport.

"FIFA has ratified the World Anti-Doping Code. A number of points specifically related to team sports remain to be defined, but that is all."

The issue of doping will be on the agenda of the upcoming FIFA Congress, to be held on 2 and 3 June in Nassau (Bahamas), in which the WADA Director General, David Howman, will participate.
