The Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) will air a World
Cup qualifying match between the Turkish and Armenian national teams
on Saturday, TRT officials have announced.

Turkish "Today's Zaman" reports that a nine-member TRT team will
travel to Armenia to cover the game. But while in Armenia, they will
also have interviews with Armenian nationals in the capital city
of Yerevan and prepare news features to give the Turkish audience a
better insight into daily life in their neighboring country.

The TRT recently signed a memorandum of understanding with Armenia's
state-owned Public Television Company to cooperate in a number
of areas. The document, signed in Ankara on Aug. 26, envisages
that the two broadcasters will produce TV programs that will help
improve dialogue between Turkey and Armenia, exchange information
and experiences and collaborate on entertainment and drama programs
and documentaries.
