Saloniki, one of the cities of Greece will host the World Championship of the veterans of Samba. The Georgian National team may not be able to travel to the Championship as the Greek Embassy is not issuing visas to the members of the team. Teams from 30 countries will participate in the Championship.

If I was to look for naughtiness, ie my sportsmen wanted to remain in Greece (this is how the Embassy thinks) — I have an invitation for 80 men and I am only sending 6 sportsmen and all of them are world champions within veterans, and are holding senior position within law enforcing system, police etc. They had to be on th spot already but have not yet received their visas. The reason for refusal according to the Embassy officials is that they may be intending to stay in Greece. I reiterate — there is no danger of this.
