WKF President Antonio Espinós visited on Saturday the headquarters of the San Marino National Olympic Committee and met with the President of the sport institution of the European country, Gian Primo Giardi. The meeting was regarded as an opportunity to discuss the situation of Karate in the region, as well as the possible inclusion of the sport in the Games of the Small States of Europe.

The main point of the agenda was the procedures ahead of the inclusion of Karate in the programme of the 2021 Games of the Small States of Europe. A biennial multi-sport event, the Games of the Small States of Europe feature the nine Small States of Europe (Andorra, Cyprus, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro and San Marino).
