The US embassy in Azerbaijan told Trend while commenting on the forthcoming first European Games in Baku.
“We very much wish all the participants –and Azerbaijan – every success,” the embassy said.
Baku 2015 is the first-ever European Games, an exciting and innovative multi-sport event for the continent which will take place on June 12-28, 2015.
There will be a total of 20 sports at Baku 2015: 16 Olympic sports and four non-Olympic sports. More than 6,000 athletes from across Europe will be representing their nations over 17 days of competition.
Baku was awarded the games by the European Olympic Committees (EOC) in December 2012
