Zeiynab Mamediarova, who is the best chess player of Azerbaijan,
said that Azeri women chess players were under pressure as "enemious
character" against Armenians is sowed among them.

According to Azeri media, Mamediarova admitted that the most difficult
meeting in Dresden was the one with Armenians when they have been
crucially defeated by 4-0 points.

"The only reason of that defeat was the pressure on us. Armenians
did not have such feelings and they managed to get well prepared to
the game. Any game with Armenia is much spoken in our country and
everything is accepted not as it is to be," she said.
