Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend S.Ilhamgizi / The Chairman of the National TV and Radio Council of Azerbaijan, Nushiravan Maharramli, said that the issue of changing the prices of new licenses for TV and radio channels of Azerbaijan will be considered while forming the State budget. He stressed that the new decree of the President of Azerbaijan defines the cost of the broadcasting licenses in amount of AZN 11.000. "The Council is dissatisfied with this figure. We have presented to the attention of the Cabinet of Ministers that they were in hurry in this issue because the TV and radio broadcasting does not cover one sphere. Television, radio and cable broadcastings are various spheres. The televisions are divided into regional and whole-country broadcastings. Therefore, we have appealed to the Presidential Administration and the issue of cost of new licenses for TV and radio channels will be considered while forming the State budget," Maharramli said.
