MOSCOW. Jan 21 (Interfax) - Russian President Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with FIFA President Joseph 'Sepp' Blatter, who is visiting Russia to attend the 21st CIS and Baltic Cup matches.

Blatter told Putin about his conversations with representatives of the football teams participating in the competition and contacts with Russian officials involved in preparations for the 2018 FIFA World Cup to be hosted by Russia, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov told Interfax.

"Putin said the FIFA president's presence at the CIS and Baltic Cup adds authority to this tournament," Peskov said.
