Turkey passes law to broadcast TV in other languages
The draft enabling the state-run Turkish Radio & Television Corp. (TRT) to broadcast in different languages and dialects other than Turkish, has been enacted.

Under the law, TRT will also be able to employ foreigners.

The law allows the national public broadcaster of Turkey to sign contracts, agreements or protocols with other radio and TV channels broadcasting in Turkey. TRT can sell news reports and video footage to local, regional and national channels.

The prime minister's approval will be required for contracts, agreements or protocols between TRT and international radio and TV channels.

TRT was founded in 1964 as the national public broadcaster of Turkey. It was the only television and radio provider in 'Anatolia' for years before the introduction of the first commercial radio in 1990, and the first commercial television in 1992. TRT broadcasts around the world, especially in Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.
