SACWD, NOC ink MoU on cooperation

President of Iran`s National Olympic Committee (NOC), Mahmood Khosravi Vafa, met and talked with Head of the Society for the Appreciation of Cultural Works and Dignitaries (SACWD), Mahmood Shalooei, at the SACWD.

In his welcoming remarks at the meeting, Shalooei said: “I deem this meeting a good omen, and I hope that this MoU opens a fruitful, continuing cooperation between the Society and NOC so that the commemoration of the country's sports dignitaries would be seriously pursued.”
He added: “Iranian athletes deserve special recognition for what they've been doing and how much they're putting at stake. I am confident that like the cultural elites, the memory of Iranian elite athletes' remains with us forever. Therefore, attentions should be attributed to their athletic acts and manners to set a role model for the younger generations.”
In the end, the adviser to the Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance emphasized: "The influence of Iranian sports heroes on the culture of the country should be explored and we hope that signing a memorandum of understanding between the two sides would provide the platform to honor Iranian athletes as they deserve.”
President of Iran`s NOC, also appreciated the unremitting efforts of the SACWD in the recognition of the dignitaries of Iran and the Islamic world and said: “The NOC has always focused on the key role of culture and peace on sports and so far has aimed to highlight culture in the country's sports activities.”
Khosravi Vafa added: "It is very dispiriting that there are athletes who have not been honored as they should be and a clear framework has not been developed yet to identify them. We hope that under the MoU of cooperation, besides carrying out studies, through accurate identification and ranking of athletes, a practical mechanism will be formulated to rightly recognize and appreciate the influential athletes.”
He reaffirmed: “The NOC should seize all the opportunities provided through the cooperation with the Society and reflect the joint actions taken to the international fora as well, because the link between sports and culture is one of the priorities of the NOC in the world arena.”
At the end of the meeting, both sides signed MoU on cooperation.
