Soccer Helps People Understand Each Other Better

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–An international soccer competition–involving eight teams from various international organizations and embassies–to take place in Yerevan–has kicked off September 1.

According to Iran’s ambassador in Yerevan Mohammad Koleini–who was one of the most active supporters of holding this sport event–this mini-championship will undoubtedly raise the mutual understanding between representatives of various cultures.

The championship is held within the framework of a program initiated by the leadership of the Islamic Republic of Iran and approved by the UN declaring the year of 2001 as the year of Civilization’s Dialogue.

The winner will be known on September 29 when two teams that will have managed to qualify for the final will compete for champion’s title.
