Iran's Karate federation criticizes Asian Karate Confederation for decision against Iranian women

TEHRAN, Nov.19 (ISNA)-Iran's Karate federation chief stated that since the composition of the dispatched team to the Doha Asian Games was of the most professional athletes, the federation was hopeful of Iran's success in this field.
"Unfortunately some countries like Japan do not want the Iranian women teams to make presence in the competitions due to their own advantages, because these countries rely a lot on the achievements of their own women team and they cannot beat us in the matches that take place between the men. This is why some of the Asian countries bring about obstacles in our path," stated Alireza Samandar.

Samandar also criticized the Asian Karate Confederation.
"They look at Iran's Karate with intention and malice, and the Asian Karate wheel is in the hands of East Asian countries. They only consider their own benefits. After the Doha games we will take our complaints to world federation so they can visit the Asian federation and see to it," he concluded.
