The public television of Turkey is planning to broadcast programs
in 8 languages this year. Minister Mehmed Aydin, commenting on the
initiative, said that in general the multilingual programs shall
cover the information sphere. He said that it is also possible
that the Public Television of Turkey shall broadcast programs in
Armenian. According to information spread by CNN-Turk, the programs in
Armenian language shall be mostly addressed to the Armenian diaspora,
so as to make them understand the Turkish position on the Genocide
easier.

In other words, the Armenian broadcasts on Turkish TV are to have
special importance on the present stage of the recognition process
of the Armenian Genocide. The broadcasts in Kurdish are to have a
similar implication and are aimed at reducing the resistance of the
Kurdish population of Turkey to the measures taken against PKK.
