ABC.AZ reports with reference to news agency APA that the above-said statement was made by Finance Minister Samir Sharifov during the discussion of the draft amendments to the Law on State Budget for 2020.

He said that one of the main problems associated with the socio-economic situation is the uncertainty of the situation: "Today, no one in the world can predict how much the disease will continue and affect people's lifestyle.
