The situation around the suspended Women's World Championship has become a bit clearer. The tournament can take place in Abu Dhabi, as Kirsan Ilyumzhinov told the Russian ITAR TASS news agency on September 25.

"Abu Dhabi wants to host the Women's Chess Championship - at least, they have sent us the official bid. Prior to that, we had received bids from Moldova and Turkmenistan, and I even went to Moldova to discuss the matters with their Prime Minister as well as the other ministers and chess officials. However, Moldova failed to support the bid with the required money transfer when the time has come," Ilyumzhinov told ITAR TASS.

The FIDE President also said that Russia might bid for the tournament too. "Anyhow, I think the Championship problem will be solved within the next few days," he added.
