Silvio Danailov  thinks that ECU and FIDE should consolidate and do everything they can in order Armenian team to be able to play at the Olympiad 2016 in Baku: 

"Erevan will host Men’s Individual European Championship dedicated to Petrosian’s 85th anniversary in 2014. I’m negotiating with Azerbaijani Chess Federation, Minister of sports, Mr. Ragimov, different politicians in Azerbaijan and I will do everything I can in order Azerbaijani players to compete there."

Danailov said he's glad that Azerbaijan got the right to host the Olympaid-2016:

"Actually, I’m quite happy because I think that Azerbaijan will hold a great Olympiad. The only problem is connected to Armenia – of course this question should be settled somehow. It’d be wrong if threefold Olympic Champions won’t participate in the Olympiad in Baku."

The President of ECU added:

"I think if Armenian team will participate in the Olympiad-2016 that will be a very serious step towards maybe even solving that conflict." 

English version of the interview will be published soon.
