Narmin Kazimova, Journalist at AISGOC took an interview with Turkish wrestler Metehan Bashar. You can find his answers below:
“I was in Baku at a couple of championships, but Baku 2015 European Games has a special place in memories. I became Bronze medallists of these Games. During the Games I truly discovered this astonishing city, the capital of our brother country. I think Azerbaijan is capable to help any international sporting event.
Right now I am at training session with Azerbaijani wrestler, we are also preparing for Baku 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games. In the upcoming week we will participate in couple of meeting and after that head to Baku.
I chose unity out of 4 principles of Islamic Games. All the people should be united; it is so upsetting to me that there are still places suffering from war. I will also wish Azerbaijan and Turkey to keep on staying united.”
