Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug.19 / Trend, T. Hajiyev /
The Azerbaijani Press Council stated this week that local media outlets will likely sign a memorandum to combat black PR in the press.
"I believe that press agencies will sign such a memorandum if it is available," Press Council Chairman Aflatun Amashov told Trend on Aug.18.
The council recently decided to strengthen efforts to combat black PR in the run-up to the parliamentary elections this autumn. A memorandum is also being prepared.
According to Amashov, proposals are underway to expand the Press Council's Combating Racketeering Commission and sign the memorandum.
