The World Taekwondo (WT), the global unit of Taekwondo, has asked the organizers to allow the Indian team to participate in these games in a special talk. WT member relations and senior development director Jongkang Seo said in a letter to the organizers, "It is true that the Taekwondo Federation of India (TFI) has been suspended by the WT on the issue of operations." The interim unit constituted by the Olympic Committee of India and the WT, however, takes care of the selection of players for the recognized competitions.
