NOC of Armenia President Gagik Tsarukyan has received President of the Arab Wrestling Federation, Bureau Member of UWW Zamel Sayyaf Al Shahrani.
The guest from Qatar said he was admired with the sports opportunities that Armenia has.
“Dear Mr. Tsarukyan, thank you for the warm reception. I have been in many countries of the world but such infrastructures are few. The work you have done and the respect you enjoy in the Armenian sports world are noticeable. I want our cooperation to be implemented and continuous.” Al Shahrani said.
ANOC President Gagik Tsarukyan said the athletes that would come to Armenia would receive appropriate attention.
“Welcome to Armenia, we will be very happy and thankful for the cooperation and relationship. This is a step to turn our relation into a practice and strengthen it. I’m a sportsperson and I know what is needed so the athletes and coaches that will visit Armenia will receive appropriate attention in order to continue the cooperation and develop the sports. We created such conditions in order to demand results from our athletes. Without them one cannot demand a result. We have still much to do in the sports world. We should have sports schools in all the settlements so that children can train and we can choose the best ones.” Gagik Tsarukyan said.
At the end of the meeting the President of the NOC of Armenia presented a symbolic souvenir to Zamel Sayyaf Al Shahrani.
