Iran Lifts Travel Ban On USA Wrestling, USA Will Wrestle In 2017 World Cup

Just two days after Iran announced that it would be banning the United States wrestling team from participating in the 2017 World Cup in Kermanshah, Iran, on February 16-17, Iran has announced that it has reversed that decision.   

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif tweeted the following late Saturday night.

The reversal in decision is due to a federal judge in Seattle who blocked a portion of President Donald Trump's executive order that banned visas for seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iran. When the executive order was first signed, Iran vowed to take "proportionate legal action" and "reciprocal measures."
