EOC President: Armenia to compete at ’15 European Games in Baku:

The head of the European Olympic Committees says Armenia will take part in the inaugural European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan, next year, despite the ongoing conflict between the neighboring countries, the Associated Press reports.

EOC chief Patrick Hickey, along with IOC President Thomas Bach, met Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan last month.

Hickey said Wednesday “all the problems were solved” and “they have agreed to participate in the games next year, and they will come to our general assembly in Baku in two weeks’ time.”

Hickey, speaking at a meeting of the Association of National Olympic Committees in Bangkok, also said Kosovo will compete as an independent nation in Baku if granted full recognition by the IOC next month.
