Turkish, Albanian news agencies sign cooperation deal

Turkey's Anadolu Agency (AA) and Albanian Telegraphic Agency (ATA) have signed Thursday a cooperation agreement which will facilitate the exchange of photographs, news and visual materials and help realize mutual training programs.

Speaking at the signature ceremony, the President of the Executive Board and Director General of the AA, Dr. Hilmi Bengi, said that AA and ATA shared deep cooperation for long years.

The new agreement will make it possible to conduct relations based on the conditions of the current period, Bengi stressed.

Reminding that both the AA and ATA are members of various news agency federations, Bengi said that he believed relations between the AA and ATA would develop during the tenure of ATA Director General Artur Zheji.

The strengthening of relations between our two agencies will contribute to the strengthening of relations between the peoples of our countries and, as such, solidarity between the agencies has become a mandatory task, Bengi said.

Artur Zheji, in his part, thanked Dr. Bengi for his kind words.

Relations between our two countries are mainly focused on industry, economy and education, Zheji noted.

Pointing out that there are many Turkish schools in Albania, Zheji said that it was high time to carry relations between the two agencies to a higher level.

There are Turkish associations that help the Albanian people and Turkish companies that make investments in Albania. We do not see a similar scene in the media. I have a suggestion. Let us prepare 2-3 files (on the media) and work on them, Zheji stressed.

Following the speeches of the directors, the AA and ATA signed the cooperation agreement at AA HQ in Ankara.

AA's Deputy Director General Tahsin Akti was also present at the signature ceremony.

Dr. Bengi later provided information to Zheji on the working system of the AA.
