The Leaders of the ROC met with the President of the NOC of Palestine
On Thursday, December 5, the Deputy Executive Director of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) Andrei Selivanov met with the President of the Palestinian Olympic Committee Jibril Rajoub and the Palestinian ambassador to Russia Fayed Mustafa. The meeting was held within the framework of the agreement between the ROC and the NOC of Palestine.
The Palestinian side has expressed its wish to develop further relations between the parties, in the field of sports in general as well as the exchange of experience, specialists and trainers.
“We, in Palestine, see how Russia is preparing for the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. I think we can expect great Olympics. Of course, our participation will be symbolic, because in our country summer sports are developed more, but we will come to Sochi all the same. I would like to wish the Russian team a successful performance”, – said Jibril Rajoub.
Selivanov noted that the ROC is ready to fill out the agreement between the ROC and the NOC of Palestine signed in 2011, and to carry out real projects, including joint programs with the participation of Russian coaches and athletes.
