VOA Broadcasting in Azerbaijani
VOA’s Azerbaijani service is an important source of news and information about U.S.-Azerbaijan relations, as well as U.S. foreign policies toward Azerbaijan and the region. Employing a cross-platform strategy, the service is bringing its audience in Azerbaijan and neighboring provinces in Iran, as well as millions of Azerbaijani speakers in Russia and around the world, objective, unbiased and comprehensive news about American society and its achievements in democratic governance, business, health, and technology. The Azerbaijani government has banned affiliation agreements between local and international broadcasters.
