ARMENIAN AND TURKISH JOURNALISTS INTEND TO LAUNCH JOINT SITE
During their meeting before the Armenia-Turkey football match in
Bursa, Armenian and Turkish journalists discussed the possibility of
launching a common information site, one of the meeting’s organizers
Artak Shakaryan stated during a press conference today. Note that
Armenian journalists’ visit to Turkey was organized with the assistance
of Eurasia Foundation.
According to Shakaryan, the idea of launching such a site is
still under discussion. Such a resource will give the two sides an
opportunity of direct contact in the area of news and information.
Currently, a number of Armenian press make use of Russian sites in
order to get information on Turkey, while Turkish media make use of
TV program Urvagits ("Outline") host Petros Ghazaryan said that
launching such a site is a significant move: according to Ghazaryan,
when both sides get information from third party sources, the imprint
of those sides’ interests is felt.
