STOCKHOLM (AP) - The Nobel Peace Center says it will stop working with FIFA on a joint fair-play program called “Handshake for Peace.”

The Nobel center’s board, which is appointed by the famed Nobel Peace Prize committee, made the announcement on Monday.

The board said the center should start a dialogue with the Norwegian Football Association about how to continue the initiative going forward.
