Report informs that speaking at a meeting with Azerbaijani athletes in the Japanese capital on the Summer Olympic Games underway there, Huseynzade wished them good luck.

“We expect good results from all,” he said.

The National Olympic Committee official also said that Azerbaijan would be represented by a limited staff at the opening ceremony.

“Athletes present here will join today’s opening. We won’t take the athletes who have competitions tomorrow to the ceremony. We will be represented by a delegation of 20-30 people.”
