20 Nov 2013
Tehran, Iran: The NOC of the Islamic Republic of Iran organised the sixth Sport For All Festival in Mazandaran province on October 27-28 with the aim of promoting peace and solidarity among the citizens. Here are the highlights of the two-day festival:

1-The global peace and solidarity torch was carried from the city of Chaloos to the city of Sari- for a distance of about 200 KM- by the chairman of our NOC sports tourism commission and his colleagues in cooperation with other sports officials and also mayors, governors, city council members, political and social sports figures, Olympic, Paralympic & World champions and students by two bikes, horses, protocol cars, motorcycles and skates.

2-For the first time an olive sapling was planted by eight representatives of the Mazandaran province during opening and closing ceremonies of this festival as symbol of peace and solidarity.

3-The IOC and OCA flags were carried by high school and university students for about 50 meters in road and urban districts.

4-The message of global peace and solidarity through sport was read out by our NOC sports tourism commission chairman.

It is worth mentioning that some parts of these ceremonies were also covered by the local media. we are confident that reflection of such movements worldwide particularly through recognized sports authorities could greatly contribute to the cause of sport.

In the meantime, please be also informed that we are determined to launch a similar project entitled "International Solidarity Project" designed since the year 2010 for the 2014 Asian Games and the 2016 Olympic Games from our country towards target countries which requires your cooperation and subsequent approval. The matter has already been reflected to you as well as the 20 14 Asian Games Organizing Committee and we are expecting your views at your earliest possible in this concern as well.

Many thanks in advance for your continued cooperation in this regard.
