According to APA, Vahid Mustafayev said that tele-radio Council announced to look into the matter, but the issue has not been reviewed. "A few days ago Nushiraevan Maharramli making statement said that not any company will be given a license in the summer. That means ANS will have to get a license in the autumn."
