On April 1, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Georgia to Azerbaijan - Zurab Pataradze met with Georgian gymnasts participating in the FIG Artistic Gymnastics Apparatus World Cup at “Milli Gimnastika Arenasi” (National Gymnastics Arena).
After the meeting, the Ambassador shared his impression on the meeting and the World Cup in our country with the Press Service of Azerbaijan Gymnastics Federation.
“This is not the first time I watch the competitions in this magnificent Arena. I am very glad that such high-level competitions are held in Azerbaijan, along with other major events. Tourism and sports, as well as sports tourism are developing in your country year-by-year. Georgian athletes also take part in the FIG Artistic Gymnastics Apparatus World Cup. We hope for good results. I believe that our friendly relations in the field of sports will continue successfully. Azerbaijan has up-to-date facilities and technical resources. Major competitions are held at “Milli Gimnastika Arenasi”. Foreign Teams also take part in the training camp here. I hope that we will also see Azerbaijani gymnasts in Georgia soon.
When I met with Georgian gymnasts, they shared their good impression on Azerbaijan with me. As you know, Azerbaijan and Georgia have common features in terms of culture and traditions. I would like to emphasize that there is a successful cooperation between the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Azerbaijan and Georgia. I believe that our countries will continue to support each other and exchange experiences.
