We did not discuss with the French presidency the termination of Russian language broadcasts by other EU member states to Russia, Belarus, Azerbaijan or Uzbekistan. My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has no plans at present to discuss this with the current Czech EU presidency. The UK did raise with the French the BBC World Service's Azerbaijan service (that includes Russian broadcasting) ending on 31 December 2008 by order of the Azeri National Radio and TV Broadcast Council. We will continue to monitor the situation and will raise with the Czechs as appropriate.
