I would like to thank everyone who has participated in the adoption of this decision, to express our gratitude to the European Olympic Committees. I want to indicate that the Games will be held at a high level. Thus, Baku will go down in the history of the European Olympic Committees for its contribution to the hosting of the First European Games.
