Refutation

The EU Delegation would like to inform that the information published in the media about the EU Delegation Baku office calling on EU Member-States to boycott the opening of the European Games is not in any way correct. It is not within the mandate of the EU delegation to send out recommendations as to EUMS participation in sports events such as the European Games.  The EU delegation would like to take the opportunity to remind readers in this context that in the joint declaration of the Eastern Partnership Summit (Riga 21-22 May 2015) there is a special reference that states that "The participants of the Summit look forward to the first ever European Games to be hosted in Azerbaijan in June".
