The Asian soccer federation has reiterated its decision to support the existing FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter amid bitter arrests on Wednesday. The AFC also opposed the European federation (UEFA)’s proposal to postpone the scheduled elections.

AFC has clarified that it is supporting the bid of Blatter for another term as FIFA president. Yesterday, senior officials were taken into custody by Swiss police in a luxury Zurich hotel on the racketeering allegations.
