We have no pretensions to the foreign radio stations functioning in Azerbaijan, the Head of the National TV and Broadcasting Company of Azerbaijan Nushiravan Maharramli told a pres-conference on October 14, Trend reports.
According to him, the recent decision of the National TV and Broadcasting Company with regard to the foreign radio stations functioning in Azerbaijan was unanimously understood by the community. Thus, this question is refuted by media and separate public figures and experts.
The goal of the Company is not to close the foreign radio stations functioning in Azerbaijan, but to provide them with additional broadcasting. It is illegal, but the law permits each foreign radio station to purchase frequency for additional broadcasting, Maharramli underlined.
National TV and Broadcasting Company establishes its activities in accordance with the law.
The law may be accurate or inaccurate, but we should follow it. In addition, the authorities of the Company differ from other organizations. The Company is not subject to any organization and functions on base of the principles of joint leadership. Our decision is obligatory and each channel and radio station should implement our decision. With regards to the inaccuracy of our decision, it may be resolved by the court, Maharramli underlined.
