As all of you remember, GA of IATWS & IBWA under the chairmanship of President Rif Gaynanov approved the calendar of activities at Lome-Togo in 2008, wherein, 5th Green Festival was allocated to Pakistan in the year 2010. IBWA GA also approved 9th World Championship to Pakistan to be held in 2010. These minutes were duly approved in the year 2009 during the GA of IATWS & IBWA at Tashkent-Uzbekistan again under the chairmanship of President Rif Gaynanov.
We would like to present our greetings to all of you. Your cooperation in the past was a great inspiration to us. However, as you see the tragic death of our President Rif Gaynanov caused some set back whereas, activities in Asia remain unchanged. Asian Federation with IBWA cooperation organized 1st Asian Snow Belt Wrestling Championship in Astana-Kazakhstan and 1st Asian Junior Belt Wrestling Championship in Kish Island-Iran.
As all of you remember, GA of IATWS & IBWA under the chairmanship of President Rif Gaynanov approved the calendar of activities at Lome-Togo in 2008, wherein, 5th Green Festival was allocated to Pakistan in the year 2010.

(The minutes of said meetings are available to all of you). Therefore, the secretariat was following those decisions in latter & Spirit.
Our office was requested by the host Federation three months back with a request to extend the dates of the said 5th Green Festival from the month of November 2010 to February/Macrh 2011. This was due to overwhelming activities in Asia, included Common wealth games Ocotber-2010; Asian Games November-2010; Asian Beach Games-December 2010; Asian Winter Games- Jan/Feburary-2011. Since, host country has designed a number of activities and likely to invite many VVIPs, included IOC president, IOC members; OCA-President & OCA members. Hence, it was justified to extend that proposed date. Which clearance was given to them by the secretariat after getting approval by the board members.
It is therefore, all the members are hereby informed that 9th World Championship will be held in the first quarter of 2011 in Islamabad-Pakistan together with General Assembly meeting wherein elections of the office of President will be held, which post has become vacant due to the sudden death of Former President Rif Gaynanov. It was also conveyed to us by the host country that besides having 9th world championship, there will be 4th Asian Championship be held on the occasion. The details of all other activities will be soon sent to you by the organizing committee; however, the agenda of GA meeting will be issued by this Secretariat as soon as we get confirmed dates of the event.
Hence, we inform all our member countries that be ready to participate in 5th Green Festival with the General Assembly in the 1st quarter of 2011.
We will come back to you soon with more informations.
The 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games will be held in Ashgabat,...
