It is an opportunity for competition and a meeting between athletes of different nationalities, as well as an opportunity to bring joy and happiness to the faces of citizens. Enabling athletes and ordinary citizens of different nationalities, religions, languages and cultures to race freely in the city of Baghdad, united in the forces of terrorism, truly embodies the strength and faith of the Iraqi people in life, the dream that Iraqi citizens will regain their future in a climate of peace.
