FIFA contributed in bringing harmony between Armenia and Turkey, said President of the Swiss Confederation, Micheline Calmy-Rey.
“Football is a common denominator worldwide. It unites. Without FIFA it would not be possible for football to be the global game which it is,” she said speaking at the opening for the 61st FIFA Congress held in Zurich.
“Your initiative, Win in Africa with Africa, helped the whole continent to benefit from the 2010 FIFA World Cup. You helped Palestine to have its own stadium and contributed in bringing harmony between Armenia and Turkey,” the president added.
