Iran NOC Head terms US boycott of 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics; tyranny in world
Tehran, IRNA –Head of Iran’s National Olympic Committee (NOC), Reza Salehi Amiri on Sunday in a letter to his Chinese counterpart, Zhongwen GOU, said that boycott 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics is an example of using the Olympics games as a tool to achieve power-seeking goals, increase tensions and promote tyranny in the world.
According to the National Olympic Committee of the Islamic Republic of Iran ((NOC) official website, Salehi Amiri in his letter to the head of the Chinese Olympic Committee, announced Iran's support for holding the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and said: US government statement and diplomatic boycott of the upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing is a hostile act and open intervention to undermine the process of holding the Games, which shows the position of the government and some neighboring countries in order to attribute the sanctions and extend it to the Winter Olympics.
The diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and the absence of US diplomats, partners, and allies at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics represent an increase in authoritarian US sanctions aimed at disrupting the government's sinister demands and goals.
Iran’s National Olympic Committee (NOC) opposes the US government's diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics because it violates the Olympic spirit and its principles.
The United States recently announced a diplomatic boycott of the upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing. The White House on Monday said the US would not send an official delegation to the games.
