China withdraws, India replaces
Just one week before event starts, 23 December evening, Chinese Chess Association withdrew from event. That is very pitty, considering talented young Chinese Team, and no reason beyond that scandelous withdrawal. Fortunately, the owner of the 2nd place of Asian Team Championship, India, jumped on the seat and accepted to participate. Then the new list of federations participate is as follows: Continental Champions: Rusisa , Brazil , Egypt , India (replacing China), top three from Olympiad: Armenia , Israel , USA , host and wildcards: Turkey , Azerbaijan , Greece
