Paris, November 1, AZERTAC
“Azerbaijan has been constantly sharing its rich experience in the sports field. As the opportunities for expanding sports links between our country and international organizations were discussed, Azerbaijan expressed its readiness to provide expert support to 10 countries whose anti-doping programs do not meet the criteria set out in the international standards,” said Azerbaijan`s Minister of Youth and Sports Azad Rahimov as he addressed the discussions held during the 7th session of the Conference of Parties (COP) to the International Convention against Doping in Sport in Paris.
Heads of sports authorities of a number of countries, representatives of international sports and other organizations attended the event.
Azerbaijan's proposal to provide its expert assistance was welcomed and highly appreciated by many countries.
As part of the session, Minister Rahimov held a number of bilateral meetings, including with Assistant Director-General for Social and Human Sciences at UNESCO Nada Al-Nashif, and newly elected President of the World Anti-Doping Agency and Poland’s Sport and Tourism Minister Witold Banka.
