Africa’s Niger state is a long way from Istanbul, but Turkey’s Turksat has sent a delegation, the Turkish visitors were led by Ozkan Dalbay, the director general of Turksat.
Dalbay told his hosts: “I have come here to Niger to sign a contract between Turksat and The Niger Radio and Television Broadcasting Corporation [ORTN]. Turksat is a telecommunication agency ran by the state of Turkey. Tele Sahel programmes will be broadcast in Turkey and more than two million people will be able to follow Tele Sahel programmes in Turkey. From [now] the National Turkish television can be watched in Niger. We have also initiated cooperation opportunities between ORTN and the Turksat to the benefit of our two peoples.”
