Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev has signed an order to amend the “Decree on the Establishment of Azercosmos OJSC”, dated May 3, 2010.
According to the amendments, the words “subordinated to the Ministry of Transport, Communications and High Technologies of the Republic of Azerbaijan” in the first part of the decree are replaced with the words “of the Republic of Azerbaijan.”
Moreover, the words “as well as coordination of work carried out within international space projects and participation in them, cooperation with relevant international organizations and space agencies of foreign states in using outer space for peaceful purposes” are added after the word “implementation.”
Thus, Azercosmos OJSC has been removed from subordination of Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Transport, Communications and High Technologies.
