The Chinese-owned video-sharing app TikTok has millions of users in the US. But many feel disappointed by President Donald Trump’s threats to ban it in the country.

Washington says it is worried users’ data could be shared with the Chinese government and that videos could be censored, but TikTok has rejected that.

Tech giant Microsoft says it will continue talks to buy Tiktok’s operations in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The corporation says it has spoken to Trump and will tackle his concerns about the social media platform. 

How far will Trump go in his business war against China?

According to Novruzov, in this regard broadcasters of the Internet TV and radio channels apply to the NCTR.

“There are technical possibilities, but there are gaps from a legal point of view. We made the proposals that broadcasters of Internet TV and radio channels, after undergoing simplified procedures, would be entered into the relevant register and would be able to broadcast on other platforms, for example, in the cable network, on the IP or OTP platforms. This will help expand their audience," he added.
