In one word, we are defining standards of the European Games in Azerbaijan, and these standards are the highest. We hear of European standards frequently. Of course, these are high standards. But we are now applying Azerbaijani standards. The Games will show the might of our state, the talent of our people, and the professionalism of our athletes. I’m confident that our athletes will gladden us with victories. Our team has the strongest athletes of the country. In general, all the foreign teams have the best athletes,”
