Member federations met in Bucharest for the 12th EHF Conference of Presidents with presentations on a range of issues.



A total of 48 nations and two associated federations (England and Scotland) were in Bucharest, Romania on Saturday, 14 November for the 12th edition of the EHF Conference of Presidents.

Proceedings began in sombre mood following the terrible events overnight in Paris.

In welcoming the member nations to the event, the EHF President, Jean Brihault, said: “Our only way to deal with this kind of circumstance is to refuse to be terrorised and to promote understanding between people and groups.”

He asked delegates to mark the occasion with a moment of silence and urged all those present to stand against terrorism and violence.

The President of the International Handball Federation, Dr Hassan Moustafa, was the final guest to speak. He stressed the importance of Europe to the international handball community.
