Following a decision by Israel's Minister of Science, Culture and Sport, Galeb Majadle, to "withdraw" an invitation to FIA President Max Mosley to attend a meeting, the FIA has issued the following statement:

The FIA is grateful to Galeb Majadle, the Israeli Minister for Science, Culture and Sport for extending the FIA an invitation to visit Israel. The FIA is delighted with the recent legalisation of motor sport in the country and intends to offer the Minister every assistance in what promises to be a major addition to motor sport in the region.

The FIA understands the circumstances under which the Minister's invitation has now been withdrawn.

FIA President Max Mosley said, "I fully understand the Minister's position and look forward to resuming contact with him when the News of the World's deliberate and calculated lies have been comprehensively refuted."
