Iran warns UK over politicizing Olympic Games

Friday, 29 June 2012

Sports and Youth Affairs Minister, Mohammad Abbasi, responded to rumors that the UK would possibly refrain from issuing tourist visas to Iranians who want to travel to the games. “The UK should take care not to politicize sports, and it should respect the international principles of hospitality and tourism at the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games… London, as the host of 2012 Summer Olympic Games, should show hospitality towards Iranian tourists as well as its champions.”
