Ahmadinejad not to attend Beijing OlympicsMay 31st, 2008 - 2:56 pm ICT by admin
Tehran, May 31 (DPA) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that he would not attend the Beijing Olympics. “I will not attend the Olympics but might attend the para-Olympics,” Ahmadinejad told state television Friday.
China last February had presented an official invitation for Ahmadinejad to attend the Olympic games.
Ahmadinejad’s refusal to attend the Olympic Games’ opening ceremony has no political reasons as Iran has shown little interest in the dispute between China and the Dalai Lama over Tibet.
