The FIS President would like to inform member countries that there is currently no president of the Asian Confederation. There will be a congress of Asian member countries to elect a President and Board Members. Meanwhile, an Acting President has been appointed to organize the congress - he is Mr HamidReza Hesaraki, who is President of the Iranian Savate Federation, which is based in Tehran and recognized by the Iranian authorities. In addition to organizing the congress, Mr Hesaraki has been asked by FIS President Gilles Le Duigou to begin the organization of the 1st Asian Savate Championships - provisional arrangements have been made for the championships which will probably take place in 2010 in Thailand.
