The General Conference of UNESCO unanimously adopted the International Convention against Doping in Sport at its 33rd session in October 2005. Japan is pleased that this new instrument was able to materialize rapidly (its elaboration was proposed in January 2003 during the Round Table of Sports Ministers).



The values of sport such as brotherhood, solidarity and respect for others are similar to UNESCO's ideals. Let's recall that UNESCO's action in this field dates back to the 20th session of the General Conference (adoption of the International Charter of Physical Education and Sport in 1978.
