The competition will take place in Paris, France, from January 27 to 29, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Khaksar and Abbas-Ali will take part in Female Kumite -55kg and +68kg categories, respectively.
A record-breaking number of athletes are set to contest with each other in the 2017 edition of the meet, with 1,096 competitors from 77 nations having already registered to take part.

More than 300 clubs have also signed up to participate along with 133 coaches from 86 countries and 150 referees.
