Iranian National Paralympic Committee (NPC) President Khosravi Vafa signed a Memorandum of Understanding with I.R. Iran Special Education Organisation Chairman to better the future relationships between the two organisations.

In a meeting this month (April) in Tehran, Iran, that was attended by a number of sport officials involving people with disabilities entities, the two organisations agreed to expedite the promotion of sports for people with disabilities, especially among children and young adults.

"This MoU and close co-operation is an opportunity to find potentialities," Vafa said.

"Since about 10 years ago, we always have kept our co-operation with Special Education Organisation and with the goodwill of the Chairman of the Organisation. This glorious event happened to provide closer-than-before relationships between the two entities."

Chairman of the Organisation Majid Ghadami added: "Considering our fruitful interactions between the two organisations, now we have gathered here to emphasise on already planned programmes such as talent identification. And based on our (recent) agreement, our instructors will take part in educational courses conducted by IR Iran NPC."
