German Embassy refuses visas to Islamic regime's Ping-Pong team

Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi
FARS, the regime-run news agency reports that the Ping-Pong federation of the Islamic Republic announced that despite all attempts and efforts, the German Embassy, citing various political problems, refused visas to the regime's Ping-Pong team. The director of the federation said that the most important trip will be the January tournament, which will include teams from Croatia, Slovenia and Qatar. He said that he hopes that there will be no problems with visas for that tournament.

It is important to note that Britain and Argentina also recently refused visas to other sports teams from the Islamic Republic of Iran.
