“We discussed the closure of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's Baku office with Azerbaijani officials. I will report in this regard upon my return to the US,” she said.
Brink refused to answer the question of what influence the closure of Radio Free Europe’s Baku office may have on Azerbaijani media.
“I’m not the one who is supposed to speak about what influence the closure of the Azadliq radio may have on Azerbaijani media. However, the existence of proper positions in the media creates conditions for reliable news to be obtained. This is an important issue,” the State Department official added.
