Tehran, June 12, IRNA -- Head of International Polo Federation Richard Thomas Khalil voiced regret over UNESCOˈs registration of polo in the name of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

ˈUNESCO has committed a big mistake in this regard,ˈ Thomas Khalil said during his visit to Isfahan city.

The head of International Polo Federation said that in a letter to UNESCO he has criticized the move and explained that polo was first invented by the Iranians.

ˈIt is regrettable to see the registration of polo in the name of the Republic of Azerbaijan while Iran is the cradle of polo and the Iranians have been playing the game since many centuries ago,ˈ he said.

Thomas Khalil said that the case for registration of polo should reopen to register the game for Iran which is the real inventor of the game.

He expressed pleasure with his visit to Naqsh-e Jahan Square in Isfahan, and said, ˈI came to understand the originality of the game in Iran more than ever by visiting the historical monument.ˈ
