Iran prefers chess to American football: Mottaki

Tehran Times Political Desk

TEHRAN — Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki says that Iran is more inclined toward chess than American football.

“We have no interest in American football. Rather, we are interested in a fair chess match, which requires fortitude and patience because in chess an unnecessary or illogical move will lead to defeat,” he told the Serbian daily Politika in an interview published on Sunday.

Mottaki made the remarks during his recent visit to Serbia.
