FIDE president Kirsan Ilyumzhinov informs he got a letter from Magnus Carlsen's manager Espen Agdestein in which he asks if it's possible to postpone the match.

"I would like to stress that the question was about not the venue of the match but about dates, so I don't consider this question to be political," Itar-Tass quotes Ilyumzhinov. "Nonetheless, FIDE already responded that the postponement of the match is not possible as long as the match is in the official calendar from the last year, so changing of the dates can lead to a mess in the entire competition calendar."
