Askar told the federations that the main purpose of Bahrain taking part at Jakarta Games is to achieve outstanding results, and urged each federation willing to compete at the games to set up a training programme for its respective teams in an attempt to prepare them for this challenging continental gathering.
Both parties also had talks on technical terms and criteria on which the selection of athletes is based on.
