Azerbaijan, Baku, April 6/ Trend H. Valiyev /
The Azerbaijani Azerpoct postal operator will launch a mail-tracking system throughout the territory of Azerbaijan by the end of the first half of the year, head of the postal services department of the Azerbaijani Communications and IT Ministry, chairman of the postal services of the Regional Commonwealth of Communications Novruz Mammadov told Trend on Thursday.
