U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Matthew Bryza discussed the issue of foreign radio stations during his recent meeting with the President of Azerbaijan Republic Ilham Aliyev.

According to “Radio Liberty”, M.Bryza said that the negotiations between the US and Azerbaijani Government to restore foreign radio stations’ broadcasts on FM frequencies has advanced. He hoped that an agreement will be achieved soon between two countries and this agreement is very essential for bilateral relations, noted M.Bryza.
The broadcasts of "Radio Liberty", "Voice of America" and BBC via FM frequencies in Azerbaijan were ceased on 1 January 2009 on the basis of a decision that Azerbaijan's National Television and Radio Council issued on 30 December 2008.
