Squash federations of Iran and Iraq sign memorandum of cooperation

Tehran, IRNA – Officials of the Iranian and Iraqi Squash federations after a meeting here on Saturday with the secretary general of the National Olympic Committee of Iran signed a memorandum of cooperation (MOC).

Head of the Iranian Squash Federation Masoud Soleimani accompanying his Iraqi counterpart Ali Jihad, met the Secretary General of the National Olympic Committee of Iran Keikavoos Saidi before signing the MOC.

Ali Jihad told the Iranian sports official Saidi: It has been many years that I have been observing the conduct of the Iranian squash and the growth of this sort during the past couple of years has been unbelievable.

“As you know, Egypt, and African country, is at the top of the world squash powers, but we preferred to pave the path that Iran is pursuing and that is the reason why we are after reaching an agreement with the Iranian Squash Federation and cooperation with Iran,” he added.

The head of the National Olympic Committee of Iran, too, after welcoming the Iraqi squash delegation said that ever since Masoud Soleimani took charge of the Iranian squash sport this game has been rapidly expanding all over Iran and I believe this achievement is indebted to Mr. Soleimani and his initiatives, who is therefore supported by the Iranian sports officials.

After the signing of the MOC between the two squash federations, the Head of the Iranian Squash Federation presented a portray of Martyr Qassem Soleimani to his Iraqi counterpart.
