KAZAN, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - Ilsur Metshin - the city mayor of Kazan, which is a host city of the Universiade 2013, has declared that everyone would exchange kisses at a final ceremony of the Universiade 2013 on Wednesday night.
The mayor has not shared all the secrets he knew about tonight's Universiade final show, but said that it would be a kind of a graduation party held in a ballroom where everyone would be kissing.
"Frankly speaking, I do not feel like turning over the flag of the World Student Games to anyone else. I believe we will cherish forever the memories of the Universiade and the flame, brought here through the whole of Russia, which has sparkled a fire in the hearts of millions of people" the mayor said.
"Kazan is a different city now; we have seen what politicians cannot achieve yet - young people from five world continents, who represent 162 countries, have been united. Our future rests with these young people who are to build the world of tomorrow. Despite the color of their skin, religious confessions and other national differences all the guests who came to Kazan have become a big, friendly family united thanks to sport. The world should be like this and after the Universiade is over," the Kazan mayor declared.
