Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad left here Friday night for China to attend the opening ceremony of the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games due to be held on Sept. 6-17.

Ahmadinejad was accompanied by Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki, Vice President Esfandiar Rahim Mashaii, Physical Education Organization head Mohammad Aliabadi and Mojtaba Samareh Hashemi, a senior advisor to the president.

"Paralymipic Games is one of the most important international sport events, which should be considered as important as the Summer Olympic Games," Ahmadinejad told reporters at Tehran's Mehrabad international airport.

Ahmadinejad hoped to meet and confer with Chinese leaders during his stay in Beijing, saying "we will discuss bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest."

Chinese Ambassador Xie Xiaoyan saw Ahmadinejad off at the airport.

Iranian female athletes, with physical disabilities will for the first time participate in the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games, who will compete in the fields of track and fields, shooting and table tennis, according to the official IRNA news agency on Sunday.
