TRT World hosts World Citizen Awards

Turkey’s English-language broadcaster TRT World hosted on Thursday the World Citizen Awards in the metropolitan city of Istanbul.

TRT Director General and ABU Vice-President Ibrahim Eren told the inauguration ceremony that people across the world demanded change for the current global system.

“Against the current world order, ‘The world is greater than five’ is said louder every day,” Eren said.

“Turkey is at the center of this great change and the call, and the pioneer of a new and fair world. As a broadcaster, TRT, for its part, is not an alternative in establishing a new media and language, but is determined to be an establisher, pioneer, and leader broadcaster,” he added.

Attending the ceremony, Turkish First Lady Emine Erdogan said Turkey is one of the most generous countries in the world.
