Two wrestlers from Nagorno-Karabakh — Sose Balasanyan and Ashot Gabrielyan will leave for Baku to participate in the European Olympics, as informed Razmik Hovsepyan, Chairman of the Sports Committee of Nagorno-Karabakh
By the way, after the victory of Ashot Gabrielyan in the Sambo World Cup held in Moscow, when the Armenian anthem was played the Azerbaijani athlete ostentatiously squatted down, and then was forced to apologize.
«From Karabakh will take part two athletes and a coach. On June 20 they will leave for Baku through the territory of Georgia, the competition will be held on June 23,» said Hovsepyan.
Only after receiving security guarantees from the International and European Olympic Committees, as well as the leadership of the Azerbaijani National Olympic Committee Armenia decided to send athletes to Baku.
Meanwhile, Baku has not provided security guarantees for the Armenian pupils to take part in the 47th International Chemistry Olympiad to be held in Baku from June 20 to 29. This was stated by the RA Minister of Education and Science Armen Ashotyan.
The deadline for filing applications for participation in the competition was June 15, but the Azerbaijani side has not yet provided any formal security assurances, saying that they will address this issue only after the completion of the European game.
«Thus, we affirm that Azerbaijan continues the policy of the isolation of Armenia in regards to its participation in the international processes. We intend to apply to UNESCO, UNICEF and other international organizations, asking them not to hold similar events in Baku anymore, » said Ashotyan.
