The Azerbaijani Communications and IT Ministry appealed to mobile operators with the proposal to consider opportunities to reduce tariffs for roaming services, Azerbaijani Deputy Communications and IT Minister Iltimas Mammadov said on Tuesday.

He said the main argument is that the current year has been declared the Year of Tourism in the country, and, accordingly, reasonable rates for certain services, including for roaming services is important for tourists.

Over the last month, according to Mammadov, mobile communication operators in Azerbaijan made specific proposals to reduce roaming tariffs.

"Tariffs for roaming services differ depending on the directions," he said.

Therefore, for example, a 50-percent decline in roaming tariffs is acceptable for Arab countries, as a cost of one minute talking has hit about $4.

"This issue is being solved step by step," Mammadov said.
