вЂњThe Public TV needs 3.6m manats per year to broadcast to 95% of the country,вЂќ Ali Abbasov, the Communications and Information Technologies Minister, told Trend .
The Minister noted 30 bn manats of 124bn manats allotted by Azercell as dividends were directed to improvement of the infrastructure of the TV. Abbasov said that he was worried about the rise in price for energy and decrease in price for services. вЂњSalary and profits increase in the country, but the figure may grow at the expenses of expansion of the infrastructure in the communications,вЂќ he underlined.
Abbasov also stressed that if the sphere is not be expanded and the Ministry does not receive incomes, they will have to increase certain prices. The Minister proposed to the government not to take dividends from the Communications and Information Technologies Ministry, but direct it to development of the telecommunications.
