Turkey trains Libyan journalists

Employees of Libya’s state-run radio network are about to complete their training at a Turkish university as they countdown to launch their broadcast soon.

Seven employees with the Libyan National Radio are set to go on air on March 1 at the Libyan city of Tajura after finishing their training at Turkey’s Suleyman Demirel University with the support of Turkey’s International Development and Cooperation Agency, or TIKA.

“People of Tajura love Turkey and Turkish people. Our broadcast will include programmes on Turkish music and culture. I believe our radio will make a major contribution to our country’s economic development and democratization,” Nouri Suleiman Zawiya, a Libyan radio employee, told the Anatolia Agency.
