In October 2018, AMG reached an agreement on the partnership with Wireless Media and the Mondo web portal, as confirmed for UNS by Rodic at the time.
Zezelj then denied that there was a strategic partnership of AMG with Wireless Media and Mondo, but said that AMG and Wireless Media had a “very intensive and fruitful business cooperation”.
