According to him, the decision on the issue will be taken shortly.

Eyubov specified also the possibility for announcing the repeated tender.
The first Vice вЂ" Premier thinks, the facts brought by Bayva-Enerji, are real and they may be accepted. "If the company cannot fulfill its commitments we cannot force themвЂќ, he noted.
