Dear Kurash Friends,

We hope this message finds you well during these challenging times. We would like to express our deepest condolences for the difficult situation and I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude for your kind words and condolences on the passing of President of Iran and his accompanying delegation including minister of foreign affairs. Your support during this difficult time means a great deal to us. Your thoughts and prayers are truly appreciated.

Despite the circumstances, we wanted to inform you that we are committed to organizing the XIII Asian Kurash Championship in Tehran. We understand the importance of this event in promoting cultural exchange and fostering unity among Asian nations.

Our team is dedicated to ensuring the safety and well-being of all participants, spectators, and staff involved in the championship. We will be implementing strict health and safety protocols in accordance with international guidelines to mitigate any risks associated with the ongoing situation.

We believe that hosting this championship will not only showcase Iran’s resilience but also provide a platform for athletes to demonstrate their skills and forge strong bonds with fellow competitors from across Asia.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we navigate through these challenging times. Together, we will overcome the obstacles and deliver a successful XIII Asian Kurash Championship in Tehran.

Thank you for your unwavering commitment to promoting sports and cultural exchange.
