Athletes, sports and the Olympics is outside the realm of politics. As members of the Syrian Arab Republic and as athletes our only responsibility is to represent the Syrian flag in the games in London.
Our flag is represented by the white, red and black with two green stars and this is what we will raise up to the London sky. So of course we will take part and without a doubt our flag will be raised."
