US Squad to Attend Tehran Tournament

TEHRAN (FNA)- Washington will send a women's sports team to Tehran for Iran's Fajr International Badminton Tournament, the US State Department announced.



The Iranian Badminton Federation invited the US squad, the State Department said in a statement on Monday.

The 12-member team - eight female players and four coaches and managers representing US Badminton - will be in Tehran from Tuesday until Feb. 9, it said.

The State Department also hoped to extend an invitation to Iran's Badminton national team to come to the United States in July, AP reported.

The badminton trip is the first trip by a US delegation to take place under the Obama administration, which is considering new approaches to Iran.

Iran's Fajr International Badminton Tournament will begin on Friday.
