According to him, after the 2020 second Karabakh war, it became clear that it wasn’t sufficiently covered by the world media.

“The policy of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev contributes to Azerbaijani media outlets reaching the world level. The creation of such organizations as the Media Development Agency indicates that Azerbaijan understands that it still needs to solve the problem seriously and comprehensively, and expand cooperation with international media outlets,” the analyst said.

“In this sense, the creation of the Media Development Agency testifies to the desire of Baku to globally promote Azerbaijan and its media environment,” Krnjević said.
