The Aztelekom PU of the Azerbaijani Communications and IT Ministry is working to eliminate accidents in a disaster zone caused by increased water levels in the Kur River, Aztelekom spokesman Vidadi Ismayilov said today. He said about 15 kilometers of main fiber-optic lines in Shirvan have been flooded. However, despite this, breaks in connection have not been observed.
