"I do not comment on political and human rights issues because I do not know enough and I am not an expert," she said. "It is always good to bring together sport people and have an event like this, have people together and compete."

"The first European Games are really well organized," she said. "Everything is on time: schedule for training, competitions."

The European Games kicked off in Baku June 12 and will last till June 28. There are a total of 20 sports at Baku 2015: 16 Olympic sports and four non-Olympic sports.
