Burundian OCM-officials unwelcome in Iran

Written by Team Oasis at 23:19 12/1-2016

  It is no longer allowed to travel to Iran for Burundian OCM-officials. Iran says it doesn't wish to support cycling nations whose policies are 'undemocratic'. The new rules are active as of today, for a yet undetermined period.
  
  This reaction came after Burundi announced that elections for capable national team managers should be held every four seasons, regardless of how nations themselves choose their leaders. As a result any Burundian officials are kindly requested to leave the country as soon as possible. Already issued visa's will be cancelled. Teheran also withdrew its cycling ambassador from Bujumbura.
  
  In the meanwhile Ayatollah Khamenei prayed for a 'peaceful solution by which democratic rules are respected'. The government itself is yet to determine whether it will join an international coalition against Burundi. Calls will be made to Moscow, Turkey, Hong Kong and Cuba to discuss the matter.

  A little late to the party, but they are banned from Uzbekistan too. Forced democracy is a paradox.

  We are together with our good old neighbours in this. The level of diplomatic relations reduced to the second secretary.

  Serves them right. They dont come to Russia that much so an embargo would mean nothing. Just like that country.
