The enemy is the enemy

Teimour Radjabov gave an interview for APA-Sport one day after the European team championship has ended. The article is titled "The enemy is the enemy, we hate Armenians", and Teimour supposedly said: We were very anxious. It does not mean where we compete, the enemy is the enemy. We all have feeling of hate. But we should suppress these feelings while competing so that they were not able to impede us.

I believe the article is just poorly translated to English. Radjabov exchanged few words with Vladimir Akopian after the game, team captains shook hands, Gabriel Sargissian and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov were buying drinks to each other in the disco...

it is anything but a poor translation. the translation is accurate indeed, but noone shouldbe surprised at radjabov's poise and for the poise of the most of the azeris towards armenians for that matter.
