Vietnamese Ambassador to Turkey Nguyen The Cuong on July 16 had a working session with Ibrahim Sahin, Director General of the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT), aiming to map out directions for the cooperation between the two countries’ broadcasting agencies in the time to come.
At the meeting, Cuong said that
comprehensive partnership between radio and television agencies has
contributed importantly to the two countries’ relations.
Vietnam and Turkey have to date signed 12 documents, including a cooperation agreement between TRT and radio the Voice of Vietnam (VOV) in 2008 and another between TRT and the Vietnam Television in 2011.
The diplomat suggested the two sides exchange more music TV programmes.
Sahin said that TRT recently sent to VOV several music discs to broadcast during the “Turkish music week” programme in Vietnam.
He promised to visit Vietnam at a suitable time to boost bilateral cooperation.
He also took this occasion to thank Vietnamese broadcasting agencies for their support of his candidacy as Vice Chairman of the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union at its 50th General Assembly and Associated Meetings held in Hanoi last October.
