Tehran, YJC. FM Spokesman says that despite rumors of deportation, the Iranian wrestling team visit to the US was abrupted to prevent political misuse.

Abbas Araqchi, Spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said "The national wrestling team of the Islamic republic of Iran visited the US in line with the initiative by FILA to support the maintenance of wrestling in the Olympics.”

He stated that since the modern wrestling is another form of the traditional, ancient Iranian sports, the country will do its best to help keep the field within Olympic games.

Araqchi added "The wresting officials were fully aware of the necessity to maintain the reputation of the national team and prevent all sorts of political misuse to reject the offered trip to Los Angeles. Therefore the news circling around on the deportation of the team from the US is false.”
