He said, “Uber should fulfill the need of the necessary licenses and approvals under national law.” Uber said in response to this that there will be minor changes, but innovation will have a bad effect.

The Uber spokesman said, “Being a transport company, there will not be any change in the rules being regulated by us in most European countries.
