THE END OF PERSIAN GULF CONFLICT: Will Bahrain and UAE get back WCh 2015 places?

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain agreed on Sunday to return their ambassadors to Qatar, signaling an end to an eight-month rift over Doha’s support for Islamist groups. Political conflict between countries in Persian Gulf caused a real mess in handball world, when Bahrain and United Araba Emirates decided to decline participation on World Championship 2015 in Doha.

IHF announced a week ago that IHF Council will decide about the replacement for these two national teams on their meeting on November 21.  In the last few days a lot of rumours could be heard about substitutions, from Korea, Kuwait, Australia, to European teams as Serbia, Iceland or Hungary.  Diplomatic handball battle was fought in silence.
